A young man named Scott and dog, drove in from St Louis this past Saturday and are relocating to my former apartment.
Scott’s sweetheart, Dale is recovering from emergency back surgery and will follow as soon as she is able.
My Harris apartment was a sanctuary for me these last three years. The apartment was on the second floor of a Victorian home. It was quirky, old, crooked and filled with incredible light and love. It was a space that hugged. I don’t know how else to describe the energy of the home. When I moved in I needed all the hugs I could get!
Once the purchase of my home was a given my landlord asked if I’d mind showing the place. Since I loved it, it was my pleasure to share my affection for the area and the apartment.
I had the opportunity to show the apartment to Scott and Dale — a delightfully sassy young couple. Something about these two just makes you fall in immediate like with them. I spent 90 minutes sharing every nook and cranny of the apartment. It was ever so clear that they loved it and wanted it. From the ooohs and ahhhs at every turn, to the endless questions and especially when Dale absolutely squealled when she saw the inside of a closet painted purple!! ( is it still purple?)
When Scott showed me this painting (see below) on his iphone — I couldn’t stop thinking about it . I loved it! He captured them as a couple ever so beautifully. When they left we promised to keep in touch via facebook and twitter. Imagine finding new friends in this process.
I found out several days later through facebook that they were approved for the apartment. I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was for them.
Since, Scott gave me permission to share his painting.
Isn’t it wonderful!!?

Wishing you both a very VERY happy home . Dale — I totally have you in my thoughts during your recovery!
