4 Ways To Fall In Love With Your Home

Posted on Thursday, April 16th, 2020 at 2:47 am

Home Sweet Home – an old adage that I’m taking to heart more and more these days.

As I mentioned here, I’ve found a few simple ways that have made me fall back in love with my home again now that I have been staying in. Isn’t it funny what you notice about your home when you spend all day some time in it? 

With how heavy the news and life have been, I’m finding peace and comfort in having my family all under the same roof.  I’m so appreciative and fortunate to have a safe place to be quarantined and thought I would share 4 Ways I’m falling back in love with the place I’ve called home for 13 years.

 

Ways I’m Falling Back In Love With My House 

1. Getting Back In The Kitchen

Growing up with Italian roots, I love a home cooked meal. But, because of long work days, our empty nest, and the pure convenience of takeout, cooking has taken a back burner the past year.

It’s been fun being back in the kitchen with my girls and husband during the quarantine.   My refrigerator has a revolving door and the dishwasher runs constantly, but I have loved every moment of it.   Cooking has been a nice escape and having my kitchen where all my girls gather has been a wonderful blessing.

2. Sleeping In

While we are thankfully still very busy with client projects, I have embraced the stillness of the mornings . With no need to rush out the door, I’m trying to learn to sleep in a bit later and enjoy new morning rituals.

I’ve found myself sitting and actually enjoying my morning coffee and watering all the springtime flowers that are emerging.  This is my favorite time of year for my garden so learning to see it in a new light has been refreshing.

3. In-Home Spa

I’ve quickly been reminded that it is the little things that bring great joy. A nightly mask and occasional bubble bath have been a treat and a way I can practice self-care without the need or ability to leave the house.

4. Al Fresco Dining

One of the several silver linings I’ve thought about during this quarantine is that it’s springtime and a fabulous time of year to spend outside. On days the weather is nice, we try and take advantage of eating a meal outside when possible.  We’ve also set the dining room table a few times and it was fun to linger afterwards with casual conversation.
