i love a good day at home. a day for resting, a day for family, a day for just being.
we spend a lot of time giving our living space that homey feel, decorating it just the way we like & making it feel like "us," but so often we don't spend enough time enjoying it. we check little things off our home improvement list, but we don't allow ourselves the time to spread out & really live in our space. we keep going & going without taking time to slow down & invest a bit of time in a hobby or sip hot tea on the front porch.
so on sunday, after a busy saturday out & about, we stayed at home. we made waffles & enjoyed conversation at the table. we let our chicks run free in the backyard as we watched & laughed at their awkward ways. we got our hands dirty, planting peas & potting herbs. i sipped on tea & relaxed with a book. i dusted off my sewing machine once more & slowly began a new project. luke added to our garden beds & soaked beans for planting.
this spring, we hope to do more living within our home. we hope to eat more meals outdoors, tend to our gardens, read books in our sun room & give thanks for having a home to truly enjoy.
