Finding Joy in Your Home

August 13, 2017

Hi friends!  Lately I’ve been thinking about what brings me joy in our home.  And I realized it’s not necessarily the things or the furniture–or even the pillows!  It’s the feeling I get when I allow myself to see and appreciate the simple things:  how certain colors work together, the way the sun gives a soft glow to everything in the late afternoon, or how different textures harmonize so beautifully.  And all of these things happen naturally.  In fact, it seems when I get too involved things seem to lose their magic!

So today I thought I’d share a few things that bring me joy in our home in the hope that it will encourage you to look at your home with fresh eyes and appreciate the beauty that’s already there.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”  Jawaharlal Nehru
