Don’t get too excited, this tour is only of our living space spruced up for Christmas. Before you watch the video, I thought it would be helpful to give you the backstory on our little home. We do not own this home, we rent it from my parents. I’ll tell the story of how all that went down another time another day, it’s a total God story. Anyway, because we rent from my parents we have the freedom to fix it up as we wish with touches to make it more us. At the same time we are renting, trying to aggressively pay down law school debt so we try to not put too much money into it. That being said, I have been amazed at how a little goes a long way. Some paint, changing of fixtures etc, can completely transform a space and I plan to show you some before and after photos later. Our house is not big, only a little over 1900 square feet, but I LOVE our home. Some nights the kids drive me crazy because the living area is small, right off the kitchen and they are screaming playing while I make dinner. But the reason I love this home is because we have put effort into it to make it feel ours and it does. We have had many special memories here, as well as heartbreaking moments, and it has become a little refuge for us. I will share more pieces of our home as I become more brave. I love opening our home to friends and family but to be honest, strangers on the internet feels a little different. So be patient with me, and in the meantime, watch the video below to see it decked out for Christmas.
Merry Christmas, friends. Thank you for joining us this year on our wild ride starting a blog and YouTube channel. We hope to continue to bring you inspiration and community here in this little corner of the internet. I’ll see you next year.
