to be at home

On my favorite days, we don't leave the house unless we want to. We are homebodies and that is just how I like it. Being at home with my children is one of my greatest blessings. It is not always easy, but I am thankful for this time in my life. I know that someday Stella won't want to play games on the floor with me and Elliot won't want to sit and read books on the couch, so right now I am happily and gratefully content to spend my days snug within the confines of our home. It is a good life and I am thankful to be able to do it.

p.s. If you are still seeking solace after Tuesday's election, I loved this essay.


  1. I have been finding endless inspiration from your posts about the beauty of motherhood. Thank you so much for sharing them!

  2. I completely agree. Being at home with young children can be hard and wearing but I know it will pass in a flash and I'll long for it once it's gone. I love your blog.
