Good Morning!

“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.” – Maya Angelou

As I fill my new house with furniture I love and reminders of places we’ve been, I can’t help but think of what I envision our new house to be.  I’m a pretty visual person.  I get outfits stuck in my head and get frustrated when I can’t find said original outfit {invented in my head} either online or in stores.  So, it’s no wonder that I have a picture of what I want our new house to be.  This beautiful picture includes green walls, furniture that is a good mix of modern and rustic, and great bedding {a personal obsession!}.  But, the picture includes friends who find comfort being in our space, lots of laughter, and eventually tiny feet tapping across the floor too.

What I’ve been thinking a lot about is what happens when the picture  – that perfect image –  isn’t achieved.  I've been working toward putting as much energy into the "other" stuff - our well-being - as I’ve been putting into our décor.  Because as we plan for beautiful walls, furniture, and families, what is most important is that we feel at home with wherever life takes us.

And, this morning it took us to the beach to watch the sun rise.
