birds flying in the wide open sky
This week, I've been feeling quiet and contemplative, and I've been thinking a lot about the space in which we live. Since Thea's birth, I've felt a bit crowded in our house. I started thinking that it might be time for us to start looking for a new place to call home. Perhaps it was all of the extra things that go along with having a small person occupying your space, or maybe it was just that we have lived here long enough that it felt like time for a change. Either way, something needed to shift. I found myself dreaming of other houses and how our family would fit into them.
But recently I have found myself falling in love with our house all over again. And I've been taking small steps to clear out the old, the tired, and the unused to make space for the life we are living right now.
This is tough for me, as I tend to hold onto things just in case. But now, I really want the things in our home to be a reflection of what is important in the present. I want to be selective about what occupies our space.
I plan on sharing bits of this process, and how our home is transformed as a result.
But for now, I'd love to know -
what makes your house feel like home?
