I love our little home on walnut, i really do.
but with the addition of another little one shortly I'm quickly
having to get really creative on where to find places for things.
This little 2 bedroom 1 bath home is about to have 2 adult, 2 children
& a home office! We've really struggled without a garage (with all Ryan's
fix it tools) 1/2 a basement with a 1/4 of it used for our home office.
No pantry, no coat closet, & no bathroom closets! For this girl who
can't stand clutter finding places for everything without feeling like the
walls are coming in is a challenge! We plan to be here for awhile (at this
point thinking 5 years--shocker for movers like us!) This week I've come to the
conclusion that the two bedrooms have to be functional, not pretty. And that is
okay, for now. Since we've moved 7 times in our marriage I've never really felt
"settled" in a home we've lived in. This is my chance. I'm actually going to be
painting my kitchen, breakfast nook & bathroom.... and I'm NOT going to be painting
them real estate beige! I have a chance to make it feel like us! I'm super
pumped about that. Anyways, thanks for "listening" to me vent, in the grand scheme
of things this is SO little because I have everything I need: a loving husband &
a happy little 2 year old & a healthy little one on the way! Thank you Lord for
many blessings you give me every. single. day!
