Half Broke Horses

I am currently finishing a book called “Half Broke Horses”, by Jeannette Walls, that my mama gifted to me.
If you haven’t read it… GO READ IT NOW.
I have found a real connection with this book and have been touched by many quotes throughout it.

One of them being, ““It (the sun) didn’t really care how I felt, it was going to rise and set regardless of whether I noticed it, and if I was going to enjoy it, that was up to me.”

I have been struggling a lot lately with the confusion of who I am as a person. I know that I am the ranchers wife, the public educator, the junker, the animal lover, the glorified music junky, the paint hoarder, but I feel like I haven’t found my real purpose in life.
Sure a lot of you are probably thinking “JUST WAIT” you’re so young, but in all actuality I’ve always had an old soul and feel a lot older than my years.
I want to find that place in life where I feel accomplished and can truly lay in bed every night thankful for all I accomplished in every given day.

I find that the times I feel happiest are when I’m home with the music cranked// painting, creating & junkifying something, surrounded by all of my fur babies.
Now to find a way to incorporate the $$$$ makin’ side of that and I would be well on my way to becoming self actualized.

END OF RANT.
Life really is a journey and I just need to find my destination.

On another note Chad and I have been talking about doing a home tour post for sometime, it’s coming but not yet.
I think it hasn’t arrived yet because of the fact that I am never fully satisfied with our home.
I love it don’t get me wrong, but I change things daily in our home.
I’m still waiting for the realization that I probably never will be COMPLETELY satisfied because we are growing as people and changing so much.

For now I will share our most recent upgrade to our “little house”//Guest house.

This was a completely plain white wall beside the beam that we already installed.
I decided it needed something.
Tongue and groove pine and whitewash seemed to be the answer.
I asked my handy dandy Hubby to help me with the installation and we decided to add a nice piece of barn-board as the baseboard. Which turned our exactly as I imagined.
IMG_1035 IMG_1036I am absolutely in love with how our “little house” is coming along.
IMG_1039 IMG_1040After we installed the baseboard and tongue and groove, Chad hung my arrows that he made for me.
Since he has been off after the accident he has helped me with many projects I wanted to accomplish.
I’m very thankful for his love & patience.

IMG_1043 IMG_1044I love everything about this wall.
I am still going to add a couple more things, but I just had to share this.

Have a wonderful week and don’t forget to “follow your arrow, wherever it goes.”
