Caulk It

8:02 PM

Have you noticed that your ceiling is separating from your molding?  Have you noticed that your beautiful molding is cracking more than usual around your fireplace?  You’re not the only one.  Your house is not falling apart.  You don’t have caulking issues.  You don’t need to leave a message on your contractor’s emergency hotline.  Don’t be alarmed.
When we first moved into our house, my favorite part about our charming older home was the molding and trim.  There are gorgeous details throughout our home.  We are so lucky to have such beautiful craftsmanship in every room of our house.  The only problem is that it separates in the winter. 
A couple of winters ago, I remember standing on a ladder, pregnant, caulking.  My husband and father tried to explain to me that it would return to normal in the spring or as soon as the AC came back on.  I didn’t believe them.   As soon as spring arrived, it was like the cracks disappeared.
