I often post a list of all the things for which I’m thankful on Thanksgiving. But, in an effort to get back into the habit of daily blogging, I’ve decided to do a post a day for the month of November.
12. Our Home
I love our home. It’s a compact house on a rather busy residential street in small town Kentucky. We had to convert a bedroom to create a dining room, and I have to share that dining room for my office, but I love our home. The backyard is big enough to hold the dog, the kids, and a relatively large garden. We utilize every single room inside, and have a huge basement that holds way too much storage (I am so enamored of the simplicity & less is more mindset and am making the basement my goal for the year.)
Inside these walls, we have a happy family, often noisy boys, and a teen who brings friends home. My family gathers in the same room. When we watch television, we all watch the same thing. When we share a meal, it’s at the table in the dining room. When I lie in my bed, I can hear the kids in their rooms. We are in walking distance to the boys’ school and less than 2 miles from our church.
We looked at SO MANY houses when we were moving to Kentucky. When we walked into this one, we knew this was exactly what we needed and wanted. It has served us well these six years. We are currently looking to buy land a build a homestead, but it is by no means a reflection of any discontent with this home at all.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
