Because I’m Renting

I’m renting.

My husband and I are in our third trimester behind schedule on the build of our new home…which is why I’m renting.
All of my personal belongings are in storage…because I’m renting. 
I’ve been bitten by approximately 86 large black flies…because I’m renting. 
If I don’t keep laughing, I just might cry…because I’m renting. 

I can break from work to do a back dive into the river…because I’m renting. 
My dog gets to leap off the dock and swim with me…because I’m renting.
I get to paint my toenails a color that pops off of a grey dock…because I’m renting. 

I see a beautiful fuchsia sunset to end each day…because I’m renting. 
Life is good…because I’m renting. 





The Clothes: Bathing Suit Top (French Top in Navy by J. Crew), High Waisted Bikini Bottoms: Top Shop), Vintage Lilly Pulitzer long skirt (Habersham Antiques Market), Flowered Silk Jacket (French Connection, similar)
