making a house a home

“A house is a home when it shelters the body and comforts the soul.” 
-Phillip Moffitt

We moved into our apartment in Orange, CA about two months ago. We had been anticipating this move for several months, and once it was all finalized we were all ecstatic! We love our apartment, and we love our city. Coming home everyday has never once felt dull or too familiar. Yes, it is comfortable and it is our home, but I love that I have not gotten used to it yet. I hope it stays that way for a while.

Even though we loved our house, we still felt like it was not quite home just yet. So we decided before we got too comfortable, we should get on the ball of decorating it, and setting things up. I am beyond glad that we did that last week. Already, I feel a world of difference when I walk through our apartment door. It now feels like home. There is something about decorating and getting creative that truly makes a house a home.

Here are some photos of what we have set up in the last week:

 I love the sense of feeling at home in your house. It's a blessing to live here, in this season, I am really happy. I even went to a friend's yard sale this morning to pick up a few more house items. I love it, it's never ending & that is the best part!

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. It's lovely here in Sunny Southern California, so much so that I am about to go spend some time at the beach with one of my favorites!



  1. The place looks great, I love the shower curtain! That's awesome that you're happy with the place!!
