I love being at home. Waking up at home, smelling the coffee brewing, hearing the birds chirping and just... being.at.home. I hate leaving for work in the morning and I love coming home in the afternoon. I enjoy having the windows open and yes, even cleaning. It's not just my home, I am the same way at my parents house. I"m sure you can relate. They have moved a couple of times, but it doesn't seem to matter where they are, it still has that same "homey" feel. We are going to visit them this weekend for Easter and I am so excited. Besides the fact that they live at the coast (who doesn't love that?) I just really look forward to being around them and feeling like I'm "at home".
I also look forward to the day I get to stay home with our kids. There's something that really excites me about making our home have the same feel. Where guests feel welcome just dropping by and saying hi, and our kids' friends want to come hang out. I really want it to be an "open door" kind of place.
Ahh, the joys of home.
