Home Escape

Do you ever find yourself wishing your home was more picturesque and that having a nicer home would somehow fix your life? I know we're all guilty of this - especially in a culture that teaches us to always want more - but we should try to be content and grateful for what we have.

My tiny little apartment is extremely old, like pre-WWII era old. I can hear my neighbors below me laughing, the neighbor beside me when she turns on the water, and the older woman who calls her cat outside my door. Some of the outlets in my room don't work, I don't have a washer or dryer, and I really, really miss a dishwasher. The kitchen is smaller than the closet I grew up with, and my significant other and I constantly are running into one another.

However, while my home is actually perfect for me and I absolutely love (for its price tag and charm), I find myself drooling over the picturesque homes on Pinterest.

So, here's to all the homes on Pinterest that I think about as I spend Saturdays washing clothes and each night as hand dry dishes. And to remember that what makes a home isn't what it looks like, but who's in it.
