It's been just two days under a year since we moved into our home. In that time we have lived in a construction zone, without a kitchen, sometimes without water, many nights without heat. We have installed a new furnace, a new kitchen, hooked up the washer and dryer, leveled the floor in the upstairs hallway, installed a bathroom, finished the master suite, created a home.
We decorated for Christmas this week. Last year it was done surrounded by boxes. This year I had to pack up the pumpkins and harvest themed accouterments in order to decorate for Christmas. I've replaced our daily ware dishes with Christmas dishes received from my mother. The sun on the wall replaced by the moon painted as a folklore style Santa Claus. The pillows on the couch with holiday theme pillows.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And our house is certainly looking like a home.
