Recent Home Comforts


It’s beginning to look a lot like fall. And with fall comes another round of nesting in our home. Somewhere around mid to late September, I instinctively get the urge to start cleaning, reorganizing, and decorating our home for the new season. Fall is the season in which we start slowing down a bit and spending more time indoors. So it only makes sense to make our home cozy. I started my fall decorating by putting up the burlap wreath that I made last year.  I love it so much and it really makes our home feel like… home.

Home is more than the items that create cozy spaces, but the joy, happiness, and life that it encompasses.

Home is… taking flight over the kitchen table,


vegetables still thriving in our tiny garden,


finding comfort in new recipes,


fresh flowers smiling from the bedroom,


hanging art that perfectly represents our growing family,


admiring our new addition,


and her admiring us back.


What does home feel like to you?
