Ooh, it looks so cozy!! I love it!


Amazing what a nice candle and some soft sheets can do for...a marriage! lol!

It does look wonderful!


I identify with NOT embracing your house as a home...hating it...knowing or at least HOPING it's temporary!! I've also been realizing lately though that it is my home and I have to put some love and time into it to get anything back! Your room looks beautiful and very inviting :)

Love it! You're so right friend, home is wherever you are with God there in your midst!Looking forward to hearing about morning meetings.

Love that you did what you did - with love! My husband and I are also guilty of not getting Christmas presents for each other for the past few years. And we could financially justify it. But this year we made each other a priority - and what a difference it has already made.
I might have to meet all day in those chairs!

this is so awesome. love to all of your family.


Much love to you, girl.


We have a sitting area too...don't use it enough. Tend to lay in bed. Great to have a morning meeting. The night time meetings tend to get pushed off in our house.


Oh I know what you mean! Sometimes little details just bring good memories or are just pretty, or like you said they make you happy! My husband and I just bought our first house and it was so overwhelming having everything in boxes and all over the place, so I took the old advice of one room at a time. Our bedroom was first and I got out some of my favorite things: our wedding picture, a lovely painting of a flower with a verse and my little blur jewelry box, and voila!
