as we spend the next few days wandering through our place and trying to visualize our things, our selves, our life in this new space, my mind keeps wandering to the notion…

what makes a house a home?

i think a large part of making your new space feel yours is inviting the folks you know and love into your home, making them feel at ease and maybe sharing a meal or two. i just cannot wait to share our new space with our own sweet friends and family!

in the meantime, here are a few ‘welcoming’ ideas i’m most excited about (esp. as we wade though the dusty chaos of sanding and painting!)

(a gorgeous bouquet to brighten your entry, a welcome tray for overnight guests, warm peach pie baking in the oven and a gloriously soft wrap to snuggle in by the fire (or after a midnight dip!)
