Home

Home.  Nest.  Love.    I am sitting here now, with only a free moment or two, listening to many men up on my roof banging away.  Today we are getting a new roof over our tiny tiny home.  It is odd how happy I feel, to get a new roof which will protect us better, longer.  This tiny little crowded space is full of us, of our life.  It has been 10 years here.  10 years of making this place ours.  10 years of raising our family, protecting them.  10 years of longing for more space, but 10 years of loving that we have our own space.  10 years with dogs, cats, and a bird, and us.  Ideal for us, no.  Oddly perfect, yes.

My home defines me.  The size, the style, is who I am, and who I strive to be.  Simple.  Fun.  Colorful, yet a little dark. Conservative. Little room for extra or waste.  Full of love.

My Madison, 8, made a collage of our home. So colorful. So Madison.
