Life is full of surprises and twists and turns. Some are challenging, some are exhilarating and some are life-altering. But one thing we can do to flow with the changes is to make our haven grow and change with us. Your home wants to hug you…. so set your home up for success to do so. Really think about what will work for you in a new chapter of life and make it happen. While my mind never stops and there are always projects to be dreamt up, this past year I had a big event happen that forced me to stay home for a few weeks. Some of you will remember I had an unfortunate accident in Costa Rica and ended up with a punctured lung and broken ribs. Not the way to celebrate your 25th wedding anniversary I can assure you! This unexpected stay at home turned into a complete overhaul of my downstairs. Do I wish I could sit around and eat bon-bons and not dream up ways to haul heavy furniture from room to room? To be honest, no, not really because it is the best medicine in the world! So, I stayed home, analyzed rooms and thought of ways to make our rooms more family-friendly. Fast forward to today: I am feeling fantastic and our home is happily meeting our needs of us all!
Sports … such a simple word but it is truly larger than life in our family’s world. Thankfully, in this day and age there is never a moment that there is not some sort of sports action to watch, cheer, scream, or sometimes just chill and enjoy. My husband’s game room has become the center hub for all things sports and I am excited to share it with you. Thankfully my husband (Tim) knew from the starting gate that his room was going to not be one that we have all seen depicted in movies of complete debauchery but rather one that exemplifies the respect of the “game.”
