We’ve been in our house for a little over two months and boy have we been busy! Making this house into a home has kept my creative cravings well fed and the place really feels like home.
I promised that I would give you a house tour, but I have been hesitant since it’s “not done yet”. As I look around the house, I see it all the things that I have yet to do: the furniture that I want to change. The cabinets that I want to paint. The walls that have yet to be filled. Add in the fact that there is always a floor that needs to be vacuumed, dust somewhere and toys in places they shouldn’t be and I have plenty of reasons why I don’t feel ready to show the house yet.
Then I realized….I’ve always kept it real, so why should I stop now? Truth be told, my house doesn’t look like it came out of a magazine. I have an active almost-3-year old who creates a toy tornado on the regular. I often have dirty dishes in the sink. My dogs shed at an incredible rate. My days are filled to the brim with running a business, taking care of my little and attempting to have dinner ready each night. I don’t have it all together. And I’m guessing neither do you. So rather than wait until everything is “done” and “just right” (which would only add to the cycle of us feeling like everyone else has it together so we should too), I’m going to give you a peek at the house as it is right now; with projects that have yet to be done and walls that have yet to be filled.
The Living room. Yes, that is a Moby Dog on the couch. See? Real life!Our thankful jar. We fill it with things we’re thankful for throughout the week and read them together over dinner. Our “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree :)The KitchenHooray for granite countertops!
Oh the little things that make my heart soar. Wine glass holder!
The room that we don’t quite know what to do with yet. Hi, Hope Dog!
