Earlier this week, I blogged about making a house a home. I talked about my desire to have everything perfectly decorated and cozy.
And then I cleaned.
What a difference sprucing up the house with some elbow grease makes! I like to keep a clean house anyway, but there's nothing like the smell and feel of pristine floors and a scrubbed shower. I make an effort to spot clean every other day or so, but a good deep clean does wonders.
This week I tried some new recipes for supper, too.
It's not rocket science, but good, wholesome food is almost comforting. I love that Greg and I sit down for supper almost every night. We set the table, we have a meal (even if it's leftovers), we pray, and we talk about our day. It's just plain nice.
So, maybe having a "home" doesn't need to cost a fortune. Why not start with the simple stuff?
