And our home is definitely where our heart is for my son and I.
Today we had a routine inspection, and the previous day of (extra) cleaning have been a great reminder for me.
Of how much I truly adore this house. And neighbourhood.
And as I lovingly wiped down each bench etc, I poured my love into this house.
My son is also very grateful to live here, and did this drawing to be given to the owner.
“If I do her a drawing to say thank you, maybe she will let us stay here forever”
Of course nothing is forever. And we will be happy wherever we go. Because we have each other. And the faith that everyone will be okay. And we will create our own happiness.
I do love this house. And will love it every moment that we are lucky enough to live here.
Here are some photos of my favourite parts of the house:
My very favourite room – so sunny and bright
My favourite spot to sit ♥
My son’s table
The antique chairs in the courtyard
The birdbath (with my heirloom orchard)
The cat which keeps me company in my kitchen
This house has been such a healing place for my son and I.
We left behind the pieces of our family at the old house. Our memories, and our life as the 3 of us.
And here we have started over.
Made new friends.
And found ourselves.
And the happiness that comes from being with each other ♥
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.
