I LOVE my home! We live in a Craftsman cottage that just turned 100. It is small but with high ceilings so it doesn’t feel small. It is cozy with many fun aspects, like the built-in china cabinet. The kitchen is big, big enough for a traditional kitchen table if we wanted. Instead, we have an island. I have added many whimsical touches with more to come.
I want our home to be a sanctuary, a retreat where my family can come at the end of the day to relax & renew. I believe too many families treat their home like it’s the Motel 6 & they are on vacation. They seem their dwelling as a place to eat, shower, sleep & change clothes before heading out for another stress filled day!
Every family needs a home where they can escape the stress & pressure of the outside world at the end of the day. A home should be decorated so family members can relax & enjoy one another’s company. A home should be filled with love, laughter, friends & family.
Find small ways to begin create a retreat in your home. Enjoy spending time there with your family. Learn to relax at home. Begin living your life of Simple Joy in your home with the people you love!
Time to check out of that motel!
