Little taupe houses
Aint that America were someting to see baby
Aint that America, home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me.”
We bought our house in March 2001 – a ‘50s ranch on a pretty, park-like piece of property.
Problem? The house was the color of baked salmon – a light peachy pink with a turquoise green door. This is a fine combination if you live in Boca or Bermuda, but we live in suburban New Jersey. Just. No.
We were going to paint right away, but you know? Life happened. September 11 and then trouble at both my job and Mark’s. Two babies. Tight finances. The years passed and our little pink house stayed that way.
But not anymore!!
I am proud to announce that we are now the proud owners of a little taupe house with brick red doors. It’s not as catchy as a certain song lyric, but it sure is easier on the eyes.
