SUBURBAN HOME




















I love fashion, but I do not consider it a significant part of who I am. I would say what makes me who I am is the unconditional, fierce love I feel for those who are most important to me. I have always been a homebody. I am home when I am with the people I adore the most in this world. The things surrounding me in this dwelling -- the little belongings I see and experience on a daily basis -- are a reminder of the life I have now and what I've gone through to get here: a pair of shoes I was wearing when my husband and I realized we were going to be parents, an old Norwegian knick-knack my mother gave me when I moved into my first apartment, a plush animal I slept with as a child that now sits in my son's crib. I never pictured my life this way ten or even two years ago. I am not sure what I did to deserve the special people with whom I get to share my days, but I try not to ask questions. Life is too short to not cherish and enjoy what matters most to you, whatever that may be.

Awesome pics of your family! Love the sentiments in this post, and love the pics of the meaningful things in your home. You're right, we are not defined by our possessions - our possessions at best are reminders of who we love and why we love them : )

Julia said...

Bravo. I love this little peek into your daily life, and agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments. That baby is the CUTEST. And your shoes are the HOTTEST. Much love.

It makes me happy when the people I follow through blogs go from strangers I occasionally leave comments for, to real people. That's when I start thinking of them as my friends. Great post!
