Here is my kitchen where I spend oodles of time. It is never fully cleaned and put away, because by the time I get it that way it's time to make another meal. I used to feel more stressed about it, but now that I am learning to cook healthier, more nourishing meals it is satisfying to have such a well-used kitchen.
See if you can find Luke up there. :-)
One of my favorite spots because I do not like shoes all piled up at the door!
I can fit a lot onto that counter. Here is a random action shot:
Small, but functional dining room.
Here is the big ol' living room. One of the selling points of this house, for sure. We fit lots of students, family, friends and toys in here!
Sean's room and eventually Luke's, as well. I am standing on the corner of the second bed, squished up against the wall trying to get this angle. It is not as big as this makes it look- some good camera work if I do say so myself!
Ok- this is just embarrassing, but I had to include it. This is the hallway outside of Sean's room. I stored all our craft and homeschool stuff here. I have since changed all that. :-)
Yeah... another great shot of the dark hallway. It does not look like this anymore. This has the makings of a good before and after post!
Because I'm all sophisticated, I had to include the laundery room. But seriously, I love this little closet- turned- laundry room. It is right across from my bedroom.
Speaking of my bedroom, I totally forgot to take a picture. In it is also Luke's sleeping nook. Not quite big enough to call it a nursery. And the basement is looking much better these days, although not all the way done. I will just have to do a part two.
I think almost all of the rooms have been tweaked sinced the pictures. I could almost do a whole new tour. Almost.
And here is my sweet assistant photographer:
I really do like looking at other homes on blogs, but I have not done it in a while. Most of them, although gorgeous, used to make me feel less content with my own God-provided home (God has thankfully done a work in my heart about that). My favorites are the ones that look like every day houses, not magazine pictures. And I am always a sucker for a good picture of home organization!
