Please understand I would love this scenario. Setting up my playhouse house (which consisted of a big box or tall weeds behind the barn) has been my favorite thing to do since childhood. The reality of life though is far from the perfect scenario my pictures hold.
Things get messy around here. I’m a DIYer, a home educator, a blogger, and a wife and mother. The most important of those being the last two.
Our house is lived in, well lived in. We have four kids living at home, with our oldest son living at college, and our house is were all the best things in life happen.I’ve come to terms with it being a constant flow of stuff everywhere.
Life is messy.
It’s such a busy wonderful time in our lives and I welcome the chaos knowing full well it’s temporary.

To live a life well, things must get messy. And in that mess there is a realness that makes life so very good.
