My Home Story

One of my favorite little sayings is "Home is Where Your Story Begins".  I love thinking of life as a story.  I love thinking that the setting for that story is your home.

This past week Pete has been traveling.  He was in Europe for 8 days.  We did not talk very much and e-mail were far and few between.  I was not dreading this week at all.  I was so excited for him to go to Europe.  I was looking forward to the week with just me and my kids. I knew this week would be a different sort of story for the both of us.

On the first night of him not being here my mom and I rearranged the ENTIRE downstairs.  We moved furniture, swapped carpets, switched rooms.  It was so fun.  Pete has no idea.  EVERYTHING looks different.

Making a new house your own takes some time and patience.  Things from the "old" house are still with us but they need to be used in a different way in the "new" house.  It takes some sorting.  And this week I SORTED and SORTED!!  I loved every minute of it.  Changing one thing leads to changing another and before you know it EVERYTHING feels new and exciting.

A FULL update will be posted as soon as he sees it.  I have been DYING to takes pictures ALL week but I knew he would probably check the blog if he could and I did not want to ruin anything...but just imagine a little bit of color mixed up!!

My story is very much linked to my home and by making a few changes the story feels fresh and exciting...

stay tuned...
