Welcome to our home! There is usually much more clutter on the counters and toys all over the floors, but we (I) cleaned up a bit to give you a little virtual Christmasy tour. Hope you’ll stay a while!
This is our first Christmas in our new kitchen, and I’m falling in love with it all over again. I added a few garlands here and there and it’s amazing how festive it makes everything look. The lights add an extra twinkle, too! And since we don’t take our decorations down till mid January, I’ll be enjoying these views for many many weeks to come.
Now into the living room..I just love how cozy it feels.
The playroom got a little sprinkle of Christmas, too.
And finally, a little peak inside the nursery. The only thing I ever do is switch out this garland for each season, and that alone makes it oh so cheery. Oh, and I managed to snap these on the one sunny day in the past two weeks. Yay!
I’m thinking of writing a post about the meaning behind everything we put in our homes, and why homemaking can and should be so much more than creating a “perfect” home. I don’t want to give the impression that my house is perfect or always Instagram worthy–it’s not. Nor should that be the goal. I want to encourage you (and myself) to create a home that breathes life into the people who live in and enter it, that is beautiful not because of the perfect color scheme or expensive rugs but because love was poured into it and love is its goal and end.
Stay tuned. And until then, I hope you are having a blessed Advent!
