Can we talk about my new journal for a minute?
I went looking for a novel. Like a good novel that I could just kind of lose myself in instead of the Bachelorette and my Rose… But the thought of actually purchasing a novel and getting stuck in something totally smutty and totally opposite of my existential revelation, got me all freaked out. And I didn’t have time to read the back of any paper jackets with Lyla begging me to look at the Barbie section. So a quick browse through the non-fiction…
Joanna Gaines new cookbook? No.
Ok let’s try this. Living simply and intentionally are always things I can get behind. Put the kids down for some quiet time and bust it out. Chapter one is on clearing the clutter in the home. This is almost comically ironic, given that we just decluttered our home so much for the anticipation of moving into 150 sq ft (another story for another day), but during that process… and then the process of deciding to stay put, I came to a realization that I have never really had a home. Not in the forever home sense. Not in the way that I longed to create. And I realized that I was trying to create this feeling with cheaper inspirations from Pinterest. I thought that maybe if it looked good, clean, perfect, model home-esque, that it would feel like a home. How absolutely representative of so many other pieces of my life. I want my home to feel like a home because it feels like the people that live there. And I still didn’t know how to build that… until chapter one.
Now, I'm really getting to think deeper about the smells, sounds, and feelings that I want running through my home. Have you ever looked at designing your home this way?
So here’s to intentional home-making.
