A dear friend came over for the first time on Friday night. We went walking, I made dinner, we drank wine, and talked photography. She’d had me over to her home once before and we did the same. Knowing how she lived, I was slightly intimidated to have her over to my shoebox, but when she entered my house and took the brief tour, she simply said, “your house looks like a hotel!”
In that moment, I realized that no matter what size my home is, or how my bathroom is half painted, has mismatched towels, and isn’t any closer to be remodeled, I can’t compare my home to anyone else’s and that it’s fabulous…just as it is.
I’m certain that I’m not alone in this…we all have things we don’t love about our houses, and maybe we’re downright embarrassed about something. But rather than dwelling on those things, we need to pick out our favorites and focus on those!
Be proud of your small space…after all, it’s a reflection of you!
