Around My Home


In my home, you won't find perfection. You'll find pretty pictures and knic-knacs adorning flat surfaces and walls. The color pink dotted throughout and lace and candles. Stacks of books and paper and pens/pencils where studying goes on or journal writing occurs.


Around my home, you won't find expensive things. You'll find flowers in a jar. A child's picture hanging on the fridge. Puppy toys scattered throughout. Music playing and sometimes the tv (mainly at night). There are art supplies, coupons waiting to be filed, and rainbow stars on the windows.


Around my home, you won't find name brand clothes (unless found uber-cheap at the thrift store). You'll find cute clothes in bright colors, homemade cakes, cookies, or brownies, and our family eating home-cooked meals. I'm all for D-I-Y projects and coming up with creative solutions.

Around my home, you'll find love, laughter, and comfort. You'll find a listening ear, a place to relax, and a place where authencity is celebrated.

Tracy, thanks for opening your heart and your home. I feel like I know you! Your home is really nice, and I noticed dishes in the dish rack, which made me smile. I have a dishwasher, but always wash dishes by hand. It's a relaxing and peaceful time for me, washing dishes, looking out the window, and daydreaming.

A home filled with love is what's important, not name brands or the latest gadgets.
