Richella at Imparting Grace is hosting her very first party! It's all about the special touches you have added to your house to make it a home. Stop by and check it out!
I love to dress up my front door! Normally there is a wreath hanging on the front door to welcome you into my house! Currently it is my newest spring wreath.
And coming soon I will be able to plant my flower pots to sit on the front step, it's still too cold, it's only 45 today :(
But after you enter the front door I make no promises! Normally it looks like my house threw up! I would love to have a house where everything was put away and only out when necessary
yeah I'm one of those, clutter drives me insance! but I have a 3 year old and a 20 month old! So please step over the pile of shoes as you walk in to see what makes my house a home!
You might see pillows left on the floor, but I see our baby doll beds from last night! I see the fort that was built after we were done playing babies and I see an attempted trampoline that mom caught out of the corner of her eye at the last minute!
A very messy kitchen? I hear countless hours of the girls giggling as they "cooked me lunch or made me coffee."
A pile of stuffed animals? I see 2 little girls snuggled up beside each other telling secrets (or at least that's what Kie said!).
The clutter and chaos is what makes my house a home right now! The giggles from the bedroom, the shrieks from the back yard and the pillows on the floor! I wasn't going to post today until I read Amanda's post and realized that it doesn't matter what I have hanging on my walls or what pretty things I have sitting on my shelves, this is first and foremost what made my house a home! I know that someday when my house house is perfect and everything is put away where it belongs that there will be no more giggles to listen to or countless hours spent playing in the kitchen or playing with babies. I will cherish these moments and not worry so much about the mess!
