31 days – fall 2014 – finally a guest room

A few months ago we decided to purchase a new {larger} bed for our master bedroom. This gave us an opportunity to use our old bed and finally create a guest room!

Previously, our “guest room” was really just an unfinished office, with a desk and another piece of furniture. But whenever we added the bed, it quickly made the whole house more like a home.

While purchasing a new bed was an investment, it’s something that will carry over for future homes – and the best part – it allows us to open our home to family and friends.

31 days – fall 2014 – exploring neighborhoods

What I’m about to say may not sound like I’m being content with my renting status, but hear me out.

I love exploring new neighborhoods. I like picking out my favorite houses, looking at landscapes, imagining what they’re like on the inside, and even try to figure out how much they cost.

I’m sure the fun in this won’t change after we own a home, but I imagine it would be a little less exciting. So for now, my explorations continue.

31 days – fall 2014 – introduce yourself

Since we’ve lived in this home, we’ve tried to make a little bit of effort to meet our neighbors. Sure it can be {and easy} a little awkward at first, but doing things like baking brownies and inviting them over for dinner, are easy ways that we’ve been able to love the people God has allowed us to live around.

Find purpose and opportunities where you’re at – even if it’s just a season.
