Why hello there! My name is Sharon, but everyone always calls me Shari. I am a full-time mother of two boys. My oldest is in college, and my youngest will be going to college next year. I am a soon-to-be empty nester. I have raised my boys all by myself for the last 15 years. I am a divorcee, but you know what? I’m loving life! I don’t want to say that I am excited for Ryan, my youngest boy to leave, but I am a little bit excited about all the plans I have for my home. I live in a three bedroom single family home in a small town that’s about 1 hour away from our nearest city. Not too far, by any means. Ryan will be leaving for college in August, so I want to start planning for his departure. When my oldest boy, Taylor, left 4 years ago, I was devastated. I didn’t wan to accept the fact that my son was moving 2,000 miles away from home. I had spent all of my adult life trying to give my kids evyerthing, working long hours. I’m a nurse, so long hours are mandatory, but I would pick up other people’s shifts, just so my boys wouldn’t go without. I was a mess four years ago, but now I have a totally different outlook. I joined a “divorcees” group at church, and my entire outlook on life changed.
Anyway, now instead of falling apart because my youngest is going to college, I am excited about all the plans I have for my house. I worked hard for this place, so why not do with it what I please? So far, I was thinking of converting Ryan’s room into an office/library room. I have been looking into several types of lighting fixtures that will suit this room, and so far I’ve come across a website by the name of www.barnlightoriginals.com that has exactly what I’m looking for. Browsing through their site has giving me so many ideas for my entire home. I want to install vintage barnlights in my bathroom, industrial barn lights in my kitchen, and copper barn lights in my soon-to-be library room. I’m so excited!
