In every house we have lived in, the master bathroom has been decorated with a collection of all the things that didn’t get used in the rest of the house. I have never been intentional to make it a space that invites us to relax and enjoy – that invites thought and reflection and beauty.
I write a lot about super serious things here – reflective, heart things. And I like that because I want you to know that you’re not the only one that deals with the hard stuff while you smile and love and give. However, I also want you to know that there are tools and ways
So, we’re homeschooling. I’ve mentioned that I think, but I don’t think I’ve told you about how we arrived at that decision, about how it’s impacted our life, and about how it hasn’t.
