I decided I would give you a home tour over the next few weeks because we are about to dive in and do some projects to change it up a bit!
Over the past 3 years, we have worked slow but diligently to make our house a home. We literally have done something to every inch. We scraped (popcorn!) and retextured all the ceilings; painted all the walls, doors, and trim; painted the kitchen cabinets; ripped out carpets to expose the subfloors; added a wood wall; laundry room update; renovation of master bedroom and office; plus so many other details.
Over the past 3 years, this house has become our home. It is our little sanctuary, being the base of simplifying and allowing less to be more. It is a home where we welcome our family and friends whole heartedly. It is a place we want all who enter to feel the love and peace of God.
Over the past 6 months, this house has turned many strangers into friends. It has been photographed and has been an oasis for many guests, thank you to the AirBNB community. (#imperfectsimplicity730)
Pretty soon, this home will be a shelter for foster children. It will have more people entering it, more stories, and more prayers throughout it.
This is our home. It's imperfect, it's simple, and we love it. I say that as a reminder to my self to be grateful for what I have and not dare to compare. Make your house a home for you and everyone who enters.
