With each move, I found the need to purge and minimize as much “stuff” as possible. This has included everything from clothes to home decor. When things have been stored for more than a year, you pretty much know you can live without it. As we started living with less, I noticed the biggest change happening in my heart. I realized that happiness, contentment, and joy come from within—not from stuff or external circumstances. I’m sure everyone has heard of a capsule wardrobe. With the changing of the seasons, I started thinking about our decor and realized that over the years I have created my own “decor capsule” without even being truly intentional about it. Now that we are in our new home (with no more moves in sight), I want to be more intentional and continue to keep only a small collection of decor that will easily mix and match with each season.
Our breezeway renovation is still in process, but I couldn't wait to share a progress update. Truth be told, this room had a bit of a smell to it I couldn't get rid of and removing the carpet did the trick!
