Love at First Sight

It all started off so innocent, as love affairs do.  The encounter began with a routine Saturday mail delivery.  Plop – went the Jayson Home catalog onto our hardwood floor as it was swiftly shoved through the mail slot.  I picked up the pile of mail and thought I might just flirt a little and take a peek inside the catalog.  One page in to the Jayson Home catalog, and I had fallen madly, deeply in love.

Leather dresser in the most perfect natural hue.  Even as it scratches and tarnishes over time, it’ll only look more beautiful.  Love.

However, only fools rush in.  A. We don’t need a dresser.  B. It’s hard to justify $3, 500 on a dresser that we don’t need.  C. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.


I think this dresser would be perfect in Sonoma and we have a dream to one day own a house in Sonoma.  Moments after revealing my love to Graham, I asked him when he thought our Sonoma pipe dream would come to fruition.  He answered 20 years.  So, watch out 53 year old Kate, you’ve got a leather dresser in your dream home coming your way.  True love lasts the test of time, after all.

    Maybe it will go on sale or you’ll find it’s vintage identical cousin somewhere for much less sooner than 20 years from now. True love will wait!

    Gorgeous Kate. Love the post. You will still love it in your 50’s.

    Sonoma doesn’t want to wait 20 years! Just think Josie and Haley could go to school together. We should start a house warming fund so that dresser will be waiting for you when you finally make it to Sonoma. :-). We’ll try anything to lure more family up here!
