This year, I want to decorate my home.
I want to decorate it with laughter. And love. And friends. And wine.
I want to decorate it with art that expresses how I feel. Full of humor and happiness.
I want to decorate it in music. The kind that makes me dance like Hugh Grant in Love Actually. (What a dork.)
I want to decorate it with dust left on top of unimportant things, like worry and stress (and occasionally, my laptop).
I want to decorate it with cooked meals and summer breezes.
I want to decorate it with a little bit of dog hair and dirt… because that’s going to happen anyway to a house that gets lived in.
I want to decorate it with things, people, and ideas that inspire me.
Happy Friday, everyone. I think this came to mind today just as a way to word-vomit some of the things I’ve been thinking about lately. I set this year’s goals, and part of that is about creating a home out of this house. And I think sometimes that just requires perspective. So, I’m doing some (slightly pretentious) contemplating. I probably won’t do this a lot. But it’s nice to do once or twice and focus on the why.
How do you want to decorate your home?
