If my husband and I were to list our character traits, spontaneity would definitely be missing from the list. We love to plan! However, on Sunday I made a very spontaneous decision and purchased a new dining room table to replace our antique one.
For those new to the blog, here's a photo of our antique table we'll be parting with. While I've been considering replacing it for a while, in order to accommodate more seating, I'm now struggling with the idea of selling it. My husband and I purchased this when we were first married and I'm still in love with it's beautiful carving and patina. The new farmhouse style table will seat 8, or 10 with the leaves, and we were able to purchase it for an incredible price (hence our spontaneity!). But I've still got that pit in my stomach as if I'm saying good-bye to a dear friend or parting with a piece of our past. I'm hoping that once the new table is moved into our dining room I'll be so overjoyed any buyer's remorse will quickly fade away. I'll keep you posted.
