If you recall, I have been pondering how to decorate around a petite fireplace in our dining room.
Clearly, I’m focused on the important things in life.
I was contemplating decorating the space with some sort of gallery wall or collection. I’ve been trying to get rid of things, not collect things lately, so this would be a gallery wall or collection that I do not currently possess.
In the meantime, I decided to go big or go
home big. Literally. We have a photo of our daughter when she was 3 years old that my husband just happened to snap at the most perfect moment. I think he was actually setting up to take a photo of the mountains and she ran into the frame, but no biggie – it turned out fantastic.
I’m sure I’m breaking all sorts of decorating rules.
Isn’t that what art is supposed to do?
Evoke some sort of response?
When I look at the photo, it makes me smile every single time. I hope my daughter never loses that carefree, live-in-the-moment spirit.
For now, I’m happy this big ol’ picture frame isn’t leaning against a wall like it has been for the past year. I’m content to live with it for a good long while
because my husband had to drill into a concrete wall to hang it until something else strikes my fancy for this space.
