For the key that makes a house home.
We found a lovely house....I was enthralled. elated. enthused.
And then I got a knot in my stomach that told me we'd run out of storage space 5 minutes after we moved in and the knot won't go away.
For two days I tried to make it work out in my head. I'll get rid of things. I'll be super efficient. We'll simplify! But trying to make a house work...just because you want a house so badly is kind or like settling a guy you know isn't right for you just because you want a boyfriend or settling on a wedding dress so you just have it already and can move on to the flowers.
When it comes to men, and wedding dresses, and houses you should never never just settle. Well, I guess you have to settle with houses, but you know what I mean.
I try to keep it simple. I try not to be a hoarder. But I need to be honest with myself: I am a bit of a magpie. I don't reduce as much as I do reuse and recycle. So I have boxes and boxes of craft stuff and found items that I just might use someday. And I do use them....so they are part of the package deal....
I. Need. Closets.
Oh where are you perfect home!?
P.S. I found the photo above on a lovely website and saved it, or I thought I did, and now it can't be found. Please let me know if you know who took the pretty photograph. She certainly deserves the credit.
