Well >>>> I did it!!
I created my first blog post and the ‘blogging police’ didn’t show up at my door and cart me off to ‘blog jail’….so I guess you could say I landed on my feet.
I am beyond excited to be moving forward with this journey….But enough about me….it’s time for me to start sharing with you the things that are near and dear to my heart… Helping you turn your home into ‘a little piece of heaven here on earth.’
I’ve thought a LOT about what I would say in this “First Official” post about helping you make your home a haven and quite honestly… It’s hard…Why? Because I LOVE all things Home.
Organizing, Decorating, Entertaining, Relationships …. You name it …. I love it!
Not sure if it’s because I grew up in a very dysfunctional home and seeing (living with) the long-term effects of that or if it’s because I’ve been SO blessed as an adult to experience what it’s like to live in a “home.”
Sure, we all know there’s a HUGE difference in a house and a home but when you’ve lived in both – I think you appreciate “home” a little more.
I will forever be grateful that I had a Mom who sacrificed her own happiness in order to try and turn the dysfunction into a home but one parent can NOT do this alone, so there will always be scars from my childhood…but thanks to God’s Grace, I also know what it’s like to be loved unconditionally — and to have a Hubby who spoils me rotten. (Yes, I LOVE that too)
Because of this, you may notice something a little different on this blog – While I believe it’s important to create a home that’s free of clutter and decorated in a way that reflects the personalities of those who live there – I also know if the relationships inside the home aren’t what they should be….The other ‘stuff’ will NEVER make up the difference.
As, I get to know you and you get to know me I hope you will be inspired to weave the thread of love into everything you do – whether decorating, organizing or entertaining….because at the end of our lives it won’t matter how much money we’ve spent on our homes but how much love was inside the 4 walls.
So I guess if I could accomplish anything by writing this post it would be to cause you to stop and ask yourself this question…
What ONE THING can I do today to make sure my family knows how much I love and appreciate them?
I’d love to hear your answer – Feel free to share below.
