Today starts the first in a new series I am doing here, the What makes a house a home series – week 1 is something I am giddy to get started on!
I talk all the time about making a house into a home, one DIY project at a time. It is my blog’s tagline. However, no amount of decorating or pretty stuff will truly create that home. It is the people in it, the laughter, hugs, love, good food, cuddles… the memories that really make a house into a home. I have created my home with my three children, husband and two dogs. The decorating I put into it make these people more comfortable.
On this blog I also try and highlight the value of conversations, I adore getting to know all of you! So this is combining a few things which has me as excited as a kid is on the night before Christmas. I want to showcase what really makes a house a home, mine as well as yours! Yes, you! Show me your home, your kids, your pet, your spouse, a good home cooked meal all pretty on the table, anything that creates those wonderful memories that we hold dear. Those moments shared in the house that we all call home. I will also be sharing one moment, a recent or one from the past that made my house feel like a home. Such as the above one of my sweet Nora, this is her “spot” on the sofa and she will cut you if you sit here in the morning.
Share your pictures on social media and use the hashtag #OHNHhome. This way I can click on the hashtag and see all of you lovelies and your home. Each week I will randomly select 6 of the entries and put them in a collage to be shared here. I will also share the social media profile of those 6 features. So if you are a blogger or have a website it gives a little bit more eyes on your profiles (yay free publicity).
I am so excited to get to know you all! I bring you into my home daily and breaking down that wall to see what creates the warm and fuzzies of a home is going to be so special. If you do not have social media and want to play along you can always send me a picture through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will enter the picture into the random selection and share your first name. Let me know what you think of this, are you as excited to see what makes a persons house feel like a home? Let’s get this What makes a house a home series – week 1 started!
Maybe it is the cozy fire, the stars from your front porch, the messy pile of toys in your living room, the cuddle session with your littles on the sofa, a quiet moment drinking coffee, even the dirty laundry! Let’s see those moments, the ones that will be filed away into the happy place that is your home.
