After nearly a month in the new digs, it’s finally starting to feel like home. All of the boxes (except George’s garage stuff) are unpacked. We are struggling a bit with organization, and we have a laundry list of DIY projects to complete in the next few months and even years, but it feels like home. The aroma of our Scentsy fills the air while our lamps cast warm pools of light in each room. The toys strewn about and photographs adorning the walls make everything feel cozy.
Well before I started feeling at home, the quads began enjoying the new digs, especially their dedicated playroom.
I most certainly would not chose “Gold Brown” as the accent color for our home, but it’s there and we are embracing it for the moment. Painting is not a top priority at the moment. These portraits were done by Preemie Prints shortly after all four babies came home from the NICU. They mark special moment in time. Since George and I do 90% of our organization and decorating after the quads are off to sleep, they don’t see us in action. The day after we hung these, the babies honed in on them immediately. They can now identify who is who in every picture.
There’s no better way to feather a nest than to brighten the front door with a cheery wreath. I reinvented the wreath I created for autumn by changing out the “S” for a crisp white version, adding spring floral picks, and moving the lime chevron burlap bow. It makes me happy each time I pass it!
What makes your house feel like home to you?
