It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect

It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect

April 2014

I know a house doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.

In fact, I think we embrace imperfection pretty well around our house.

Actually, sometimes my life at home is just plain ol’ ridiculous.

But as my daughter pointed out the other day when we decided to bring the new puppy  home, we apparently thrive on a little chaos.

And I’m ok with that. Mostly.

You’ve probably noticed that about me.

It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect

October 2007

That kind of crazy at my house hasn’t changed much since the early days of blogging.

(except now ALL THE ANIMALS have come to life.)

In certain seasons and in times of life change, chaos moves in.

Sometimes imperfection is invited and sometimes it barges in unexpectedly.

It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect

I think embracing and even welcoming imperfection in our home is a part of living a full and meaningful life.

But when you love a pretty and orderly home, it’s easy to forget that absolute perfection at home isn’t an attainable or desirable goal for most of us.

Sometimes we need a little reassurance or inspiration to remind ourselves what matters most.

That’s what I love about blogging and this community.

We are kindred spirits.

It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect

Today my long time blogging friend and fellow imperfect blogger Nester’s (aka Myquillyn’s) lovely new book will be released! I’m so excited for her — blogging is quite the journey and to see my friends’ blogs come to life in published books just makes me smile really big and proud! If you haven’t checked out The Nesting Place yet, YOU NEED TO.  It’s not your usual decorating book. Nester shares lots of stories and her personal experiences in learning to embrace imperfection in her home. You’ll love reading more of her story and seeing her home in the pages of her book! If you have ever doubted your own home could be beautiful to you, read the book! I’m sure you’ll be inspired to stop making excuses and get to work!

You can find The Nesting Place in my Amazon shop!

Five winners (open to U.S.A. addresses only) will be drawn from the comments at random!
