my mind has been floating in outer space and when i sit down to write words for a post-- crickets. being able to articulate my thoughts, whether spoken or written, has never been a strong point. back when we were apartment searching i'd let ed do most of the talking while i sat back and asked a few questions. ed's an excellent negotiator and i don't know of anyone more well-spoken than the man i married. let the man speak! in the following weeks, i did what i'm good at... organized our move and subsequently properly "decorated" the new place. i use the word decorate loosely because choosing a rug and a lamp hardly makes me an interior designer. but you get my point. i made the place our home.
it's a challenge to acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses and i think this skill develops as you get older. if anything, i consider it a strong point to know yourself well enough to handle situations appropriately. it's ok to say out loud-- i'll take charge! i'm good at this! and in the same regards, pass the torch to someone else when it's appropriate. of course the hard part is knowing when to do so.
and with that, lots of photos!
i swear it's ALWAYS frigid in the hamptons. yes, oh my gosh, STILL with the hamptons photos.
