Nest: Feels Like Home

This weekend I finally felt like myself again and unpacked and organized the rest of our place. It was so healing. When I made Nest my word of the year, I didn't realize how it would really affect me. Finally my roots feel comfy. There's more intention in my items. I feel at peace. I've never felt comfortable sharing my space, but now I feel the energy is exactly how I want it to feel.

 And as you can see, my boys are happier in this place. They love to look out the window and climb on all the shelves. It's tricky to keep things cat proof when the majority of my decor is crystals, hah! I have to pack away my large crystal ball everyday (I will share it soon!) so the boys don't think it's their toy....

This coming weekend I will be visiting a soul sister in Santa Barbara. I am so looking forward to my time with her. We can be goofy, soulful, inspiring, and loving all at once. I can't wait! I have a massive to do list before Friday, but thank goodness Mercury is out of retrograde! I will get things done! I have some fun posts in mind! I hope you all have a wonderful Monday <3

Nesting Dreams

I don't share a lot of photos of my home because honestly, I am a little embarrassed and possibly a little ashamed. I am embarrassed I cannot afford my own place, even living with my boyfriend. When I was younger I always thought by the time I was 25 I would have everything set. How naive I was. I am turning 27 soon and have no idea when everything will be 'set', or if it ever will be. I guess that's why it is called growing up and we never stop do we?

When I chose Nest as my word for 2013 I was apprehensive about it. Nesting, or homemaking, is something I am uncomfortable thinking about. I have never felt truly home anywhere, and never really pictured myself to be a wife or mother. And now I feel all these shifts within about my long held perceptions. I can see myself being those things and it's just scary. I am starting to think about a real home I can sink my roots and I have no idea how to process it all. I feel this ache within to live in a sanctuary that can support my dreams and it feels so far away, I can cry right now.

So I daydream about having more than one room. I long for lots of windows pouring in natural light soaking and drenching my soul. I dream about owning nice kitchen utensils and plates that won't be broken by anyone but me. I want a small house with lots of character. My roots want to be in the red deserts of Arizona. I want a place I can be happy to share with friends and family.

And then I remember to be grateful.

I am grateful I get to live with my love and go to sleep with him every night. 

I am grateful we are able to keep our sweet little boys Indy and Theo.

I am grateful utilities are included. 

I am grateful are room is large enough to be a small studio.

I am grateful we have a yard the boys can roam around in. 

And I am grateful I can live on my own, as hard as it can be. 

I needed this little reminder today.
