the friend of one of our kiddos was asked by his mother to describe the house we had recently moved into...."it's kind of underweight" was what he said. i get it. our house seems bare in spots (like on the walls). plus, this child was likely comparing it to our previous home, the one full of the stuff that comes with having ten people occupy the same space for years and years.
so when we moved to this new/old place 3 years ago, we purged. i guess i like to think that the less crowded a space is with "things"....
....the more room there is for this:
even the seemingly malnourished front room...
is occasionally well fed:
may your home too eat well and often.
