Maybe it's the season. After a summer filled with boating, swimming, and lazy evenings on the glider on the porch, it's time to turn our focus on the holidays and cocooning indoors for a few months.
Or maybe my preoccupation is because Shelley is a senior, and she might go away to college next year. What will my girls remember about the home they grew-up in? What are the smells, sounds, and feelings that remind them of home?
The past month or so "fluffing the nest" as Mr. Art @ Home calls it has been put on the front burner in an almost obsessive way.
Maybe my thoughts have been influenced by two of my best friends in the world who have moved during the past year. Although I am happy for them as both moves are blessings, I miss them terribly.
Or perhaps I've read so many amazing blog posts lately about decorating, gardening, home improvement, culinary arts, Halloween, autumn, etc. You all do inspire me, and I learn so much from you.
I also wonder if our home truly reflects who we are, and what interests us. Do you ever wonder about that?
I suppose the reason for my preoccupation with home doesn't really matter. But what does matter is that we continue to enjoy our home and each other...
Please share with me your thoughts of home by leaving a comment. You'll make my weekend if you do!
Until next time...
