Decorate your home. It gives the illusion that your life is more interesting than it really is.
That quote is much kinder than my mother's comment some years ago now, which was this: How you make this little dump (that's really the only exact word that I remember her saying ☺) look like something is quite entertaining. (Or words to that effect.) It was a source of fun for her to see the photos come up on my blog knowing the reality. I know the reality so very well, of course, but I decorate to make my life more enjoyable.
For me, home has become much more than decorations, though. Without faith, it would be merely a place to hang my hat/apron/sweater/keys... Without John, I shudder to think. Without kind neighbors who snowblow the drive, it would not be nearly so pleasant. There are so many factors that create home and community. What are some for you?
