Homestead.

So we’ve been in our new home for three months now! Since we’re both working so much I don’t feel like we’ve gotten as much done as I would’ve liked. I’m still dreaming of painting these bright yellow walls and having a dining room table that will actually fill our dining space. The list goes on! There’s so many alterations and details involved before I have my “perfect” home.

But guys, guess what? My home is already perfect. I read a quote the other day and shared it on my instagram:

The secret to having it all is knowing that you already do.

As I look around this house, instead of focusing on all the changes and DIY that needs to be done – I want to focus on the love that resides here. I want to look into my front door and see, not the ugly yellow walls, but a life well lived and happy memories. I’ll still DIY and decorate and dream – but I don’t want all that “to do” list to inhibit this moment and this time.

Let’s love our homes.
