as some of you may know, one of my roommates and i spent the last month without a place of our own. our lease ended in june. most of our belongings were put into storage. and the rest in our cars and suitcases and bags. we were both very fortunate to have friends and family members to stay with while living in the “in-between”. but as of today, after over 3 months of searching, i am so proud and incredibly thankful to say- we have a home. and there is so much peace as i type those words.
welcome to our humble abode.
a place that greets you warmly, with a red door and roses.
a place that we are beyond ready to settle into.
a place to continue journeying through life.
a place to sit and just be.
i think i’m still in shock- we have a home!! i am ready to unpack and unwind. i am ready to cook meals in my kitchen. i am ready to have the space for friends to stay late and catch up and do art and drink wine and laugh for hours and share stories and dream big and watch live unfold and …..
home is a place i have taken for granted. i spent a night reflecting on what home meant to me. and processing through a few experiences that have challenged my belief of what home should be like. i was given the space in a dear friend’s home to sit in all the feelings and emotions about home. about not having one here. about the luxury of living in a home. about 2 boys that deserve a better home. about how un-sweet homes can be. and about how blessed i have been to have a positive experience with the word- home. i needed that time and space to sort through so much of what had been going through my head and my heart. and it’s funny how the Lord works- the morning after, we found our home… i praise God for faithfulness, grace, love, and a sense of humor.
so with all that said- tomorrow begins the process of moving into our new home sweet home. and i couldn’t be more thankful.
