simply imperfect

Love the relaxed feel of this whole vignette.  The scattered books on the bottom shelf makes it for me.  Imperfection has its charm.


I often find myself fussing and fidgeting with things in our home…at times I wish I could make things “prettier” in the midst of homework piles, dishes, laundry, and the like.  You know I’m not one of those bloggers who cranks out project after project – my policy is family first.  Not gonna lie, I do get a little frustrated that I don’t always have time to do the projects I sometimes dream about.

But there is a lesson.  And a reward.

Yesterday as we all piled inside from school pick-ups, arms filled with backpacks and grocery bags, one of my children stopped, slowly inhaled the air and said,  “Mmmmm, our house smells so good, Mom…it’s homey.”  I could see she felt such comfort coming home – her reprieve from a rainy, 37 degree day filled with busyness and school deadlines.  It was all I needed to know that our home is just as it should be, and most importantly our kids are happy.  It’s the little things, you know?  My kids are always great reminders of what’s most important.


I didn’t have a fancy candle burning, freshly scrubbed floors, or any perfectly styled vignettes.  Just the simple feeling of “home.”   It’s memories  like this that I hope fill my children’s hearts as they grow up.

This weekend I encourage us all to appreciate the little things in life that make such a difference.  Those are what matter the most.

    Couldn’t agree more. Perfectly imperfect.
