Making Beautiful Day Five: Home

I love our house. Most of the time. When I sit in the right place, I can look into the kitchen and admire my homemade bunting across the windows.


I can look over to my left and I can see the gorgeous mod podged canvas pictures of my children.


I can also look down and see the old stained carpet of our living room. My eye can catch the settling cracks in the walls and the swatches of paint samples from months ago that are wondering when I will make a commitment to one of them.


January will be 3 years since we made Sweetwater Drive our address. Dom had just turned 2 when we moved in. Two more sweet babies, and 19 fish later, this humble abode tells a sweet story filled with cracks and stains and unfinished projects but it also tells a tale of love, hard work, creativity, and joy.

All of these, both the lovely and not-so-lovely, make {our home} beautiful.
