DOVER HOUSE

For about a year, we lived in Dover, Delaware in a quaint little house that looked a lot like this one. That was an incredible year full of road trips and exploring all of Amish country (including some of the best antiquing scores EVER. I see you, Dixon's Furniture Auction!). The house itself was magical. It was surrounded by big, leafy trees and we felt like the Swiss Family Robinson sleeping up in the bedrooms on the second floor. The sound of the wind in the leaves lulled us all to sleep every night. We found baby bunnies in the backyard in the springtime and a family of bats in the coat closet(!). The old wooden floors creaked when you walked around, especially when it rained. I DIY-style decorated every square inch of that place because we were on such a tight budget and I appreciated everything so much more because of it. On Christmas Eve, I gave birth to one of my daughters at home during a snow storm, and that wonderful house became sacred to me. And even though I know much of that year felt like a struggle at the time, I look back with so much love now for those beautiful, beautiful days when my babies were so little.
My heart leapt into my throat when I stumbled on this painting at an antique store in Portland and the flood of memories came so fast. I hope it reminds you of a special place, too.
