The little house that doubled in size and is still barely 1,500 sq ft. The little house that helped create a family but tried to tear it apart, too. The little house with a red door and a claw foot tub. The little house that found us and made us love her.
Yes, yesterday when I was finishing my paint on the exterior I felt that the house is female. She started as a one room cottage and let people change her and she was willing to grow. She put on her leggings and stretched and breathed through the pain and accepted that she must become a new thing, even though she didn’t want to. She shifted and stumbled but then-then when she accepted this as her new truth—she handled it with grace and became new.
