This is such a random post… please bear with me…
Lately, I have really been trying to work on being content.
I’ve really been struggling with this, especially with it comes to houses. I am SO ready to have a bigger house.
You might be wondering what is wrong with our current house. Nothing! Nothing is wrong with it other than the usual wear and tear that comes with owning a home (the carpet isn’t as white, places around the molding need to be recaulked, etc.).
Anyway, it hit me the other day that instead of hating my house, I needed to focus on all of the good points. It really is a good home with plenty of room for Jeff and me. Yes, one day it might be tight if we have kids, but for just the two of us, it is perfect.
So enter Operation: Love My Home.
The first step of this was to purge a bunch of the junk, which I pretty much accomplished last week.
The next step is organizing the house. We really want to get our office set up so that it is more functional, which means we are looking for some furniture (particularly a couple of desks).
Last weekend, we went to The Ivy Cottage, a nice consignment store here in town, to look for those desks.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have much luck in that department but I did find these awesome jars!
I picked up some cute labels from Staples, which I think added the perfect touch. I knew if I didn’t label them, I would get them mixed up eventually.
I love that they don’t take up a lot of counter space, but it gives me so much more space in my cabinets, which was definitely needed.
This might’ve been a small thing, but it made a big difference for me and I think it’s a good step towards loving my home.
What is something that you’ve done around your house that you just really loved? I am definitely going to need more ideas!
