We've been married almost 14 years, and we've lived in 4 states, 3 apartments, and 5 houses. Do you ever look back and realize just how much your style has changed over the years?
I'm not the same girl that I was when I got married at 23. I've changed from the inside out. When I was young, I was very unsure of what I liked. Honestly, it seemed like I spent most of my 20's second guessing myself. how exhausting.
In the most recent years, I've become so much more sure of what I like and what I don't like in my home, which I suppose means I'm finally growing up.
I love natural, bright light so much that when I get up each morning, I start my coffee and then open up all the blinds throughout the whole house. I've even convinced my kids over the years that after making their beds, the next thing on the list is opening up their drapes!
The only thing equally as beautiful as bright sunshine in every room of a home would be live plants and fresh flowers.
This new blogging friend is so faithful to pick fresh flowers from her garden and display them in so many of her beautiful rooms!
Sunshine, green plants and fresh flowers bring life to a room.
So, open up your drapes...put a plant where ever you can put one, and always add fresh flowers!
Keep your face toward the sun, and the shadows will fall behind you.
