hey there:) we've had some questions on our home..how we have been settling in so i thought i'd take a little time and share some bits and pieces we recently spent some meaningful time sitting down and purposefully asking ourselves the 5 w's and h on how we wanted our home to feel.
we moved in and then hit the ground running with work, surgery and well...life. time flew and four months later we were in an empty home!
we moved in with not much furniture so the main living area was bare. we have slowly been acquiring some little things but the big pieces eluded us.
we finally got a couch from ikea and a chair from home goods. no more kiddo's and me piling on my bed watching tv....boo!
i am so grateful that God led us to this home and that i faced the fear and took the risk and called on it!! for the first time...at 46...i feel like i am creating a home that is an extension of me..it is fun!! i am enjoying it immensely. it is a slow process and that is OK! i am content with my life right now..not in the way that i am not anticipating God or seeking Him out.. maybe a better word would be peace. i have peace here. i am learning to receive it and not let the fear of the other shoe dropping swallow me alive and whole.
I work hard at being intentionally present in living my life these days
the sweet little feminine table we scoured for WEEKS for..we found it in our new favorite little shop. we found this small leathery ..soft ..not really sure what it is but i loved it at first sight. i think i'm kinda a blend of he & she..masculine and feminine and i like it!!
i added a fun pair of pillowcases for spring/summer..i love the pops of coral and mustard ...they make me feel happy HAPPY in my bedroom. i was pleased with their quality. and look at that cute tag and buttons!!
i am painting and distressing a dresser that i will replace the little grey table. still waiting for the perfect little lamp to find me and maybe one more layering piece for my bed
i am working on a new Grace's prayer sign for her room. i wrote it for her in a post and nikki turned it into a sign. we sold hers off the wall one time and i never replaced it...i know...eek!
here is our exodus home pinterest board. i really do use it for ideas and inspiration
