It’s one of my favorite link-ups hosted by one of my favorite persons-Erin from Perfectly Port! The 10 on the 10th. This month we are talking about 10 things we love about our home. Home is where my heart is. I am a homebody and would rather stay at home watching something on Netflix with a yummy homemade meal than going out for date night. I want my kids to remember a cozy home that all of their friends could come over and run around in. When I look around my home, so often I think of things I would like to change. Our to-do list is never ending. However, when I take a step back, there are so many wonderful things that I love about my home. Here are ten things that I love most about my home.
This sign sums it up best. What I love most about my home is whom I share it with.
How it smells. I love lighting candles and letting them burn throughout the afternoon when we get home from school. My favorite candles are BBW pumpkin candles, followed closely by the Christmas candles. The other times of year I love a blueberry Yankee Candle burning.
All of the memories we have had here, Christmas mornings, Thanksgiving, birthday parties, baby showers, slumber parties. I also love that we are able to host these events at our house.
The kitchen table. So much happens around our table, dinner each night, prayers, family talks, crafts, science experiments, meals, so much. Life revolves around that table, and my grandparents (who have both passed away) gave Brandon and I the table as a wedding gift. The top might be scratched, and dinged and dented, but it is loved. It might be the heart of our home.
Our yard is a great size to for the kids to play in. We love playing outside.
I love our garden and flowers.
This might not have anything to do with our home, but I love that our home is in an area that has all four seasons. I love going from a nice hot summer to a crisp cool fall, getting to experience lots of snow, and then also welcoming in spring and newness with open arms. I love being able to open windows during the year, but I love being comfy and cozy and warm in the winter, as well as nice and cool in the summer.
We all love how cozy our house is during the cold months. We love lots of blankets, and hot drinks. One of my favorite spots is curled up in a blanket, sipping coffee and looking out our big windows.
I love having a guest room. Having room to host people is special to me. I love being able to welcome people into our home and I love that we have a guest room for them to stay in.
My home might not have expensive decorations or pieces of art, but my home is decorated with things that we love and mean a lot to us. I love refinishing furniture and building, I love painting, and taking things apart to put it back together different. I love finding “junk” from people I love and displaying it in our home. That is what you will find when you come over.
