They are all packed up and back to school from Winter Break.
Two kids (young adults) blew in and out of here in a span of 4 weeks.
A whirlwind to say the least...so, we go back to the quiet of the house and the synchronized snoring of our two labs. Our 21 year project is just about complete...our kids have moved on to college and left us figeting and looking for something new to do. Our vacant weekends (previously spent spectating a sport or two) are now ours again. What to do? Well, start a new project, of course, this one might take 20 years too. But I hope not, I hope we get to enjoy it for 20 years +. We just purchased a Fixer Upper in the quaint historic district of Chestertown, Maryland. A FRESH START for us! A journey back to where we started. My extended family has been located on the Eastern Shore ever since I can remember and further back (since 1929) I spent most of my summers sailing the Chesapeake and visiting my grandparents. They had a beautiful waterfront property with two homes - my family stayed in the farmhouse (built in the late 1700's) among barns and located on 300+ acres.
I think that is where I first fell in love. I adored the old farm house, the artifacts and quirky niches, the bay, and the lifestyle. I wandered around the farm yard, ran through the fields, and explored the outbuildings. It had an abundance of oxygen, something that my hometown seemed to lack. The wind pushed the rusty windmill until it sang an eery song, whipped over the crops until they whispered, and rippled the water, catching the sparkling sun in it's waves. It was an inhale and an exhale of life. Now it calls me to return, this time to embrace the sweet town just up the road.
I feel like I am coming home.
WELCOME TO QUEEN ST.
I started in interior design right after I graduated college. I was drafts person for a well know designer on the Main Line (suburb of Philadelphia) ...got married, had a couple kids, always kept myself involved within the design community. Flash forward - I am back to designing interiors. It's Good to be home again!
