Embracing Home- My Journey

If you missed the introduction to this series, go here to read about it. We bought our first home 4 years ago during a crazy season of life. My husband had just finished nursing school, started his new job and we had just had our first son. When we first moved in, all we did was paint the nursery. We didn't have time for much else.  I remember at some point during our first year, after the newborn fog was lifting a little, I made a list of everything I would love to fix and change in our home.
