First off, I would love a cute older house with lots of charm (and updates) inside. My style is very shabby chic.
I would love the walls to be filled with my children's artwork & photos of Christ and temples. I want my children to know how important they are to me and how important my faith is to me.
My house will be as clean as I can keep it, I know that much about me! I also know there will be dirty dishes, crumbs everywhere and little fingerprint smudges all over my counter tops. I hope this teaches me to let go.
There will be a painted old piano for the kiddos to learn to play on and I hope there is music always.
I hope it's a place where all of the neighborhood kids want to play - brimming with excitement and fun. I hope there's always hot cookies in the oven (courtesy of me) and full bellies all around. I hope there's much laughter and joy.
Most importantly though, I want my house to be filled with the Spirit of God. I want all those who enter my home to feel safe, calm and comforted. Now that is my dream home.
