House & Home

Making Home

I don’t often share much of my personal, day-to-day life here…  But a few weeks ago it occurred to me that my husband and I have lived in our little cottage-in-the-city for just over three years now. In the time since we first moved in, we’ve torn down walls, gutted and remodeled a bathroom AND a kitchen, replaced the roof, siding, landscaping, and plenty of flooring, and torn down more wallpaper than I ever hope to see again in my life.

But we’ve also done the smaller things that make a house a home: we’ve hauled antiques from the roadside and painted them white (of course), hung up some of my paintings, and filled the place with our favorite books. There will *always* be more work to do, no matter where we live, but today I’m taking the time to honor all those little things that make me love this place…

Grateful.

    Beautiful space! That’s the best way is to appreciate and love the small things, especially with your home. I just finished reading Love the home you have by Melissa Michaels, and it’s fabulous and kind of touches how to take everyday life as well I loved it :). I really enjoyed this post and got more of a glimpse into your life 🙂
