Breaking Through

And... I'm in! Yes, it's true. I live in a new place. A place with beautiful hardwood floors, a tumbled marble back splash, brilliant artwork, and glorious views of nature. I also have a new place to write. A place I call my "study." A place where, today, I added nearly 1400 words to my wip.

What makes a new house a home? Love. Plain and simple. And, I've got that, too. I'm lucky and grateful and can barely express my thanks to those who fill my life with love. From breakdowns, come breakthroughs. The trick is letting the breakthroughs break through.

Here are a few pics of my humble new abode. Grab a drink, put your feet up, and make yourself at home. Life is short. Live it.

Dream. Love. Dance. Create. Rejoice. Cry. Honor. Adore. Give. Receive. Heal. Be Grateful. Repeat...

Ruthanne, Tx, my dear. I love decorating - even did it professionally for a while. It's like writing books or songs for me - total creative outlet. ;-)

Laura, Why, thank you, my dear! Since you're not far away, you'll have to come visit sometime. We can share some sangria on the patio. ;-))

Debra Lynn Lazar said...

Benita, Thank you! I've tried to bring as much "peace" into the house as possible. You've taught me so much. Namaste.
