Can a home celebrate?

We love the milestone moments in life. The my twins turned two and we are all still alive hooray! moments. This last year I’ve become convinced that true celebration can happen not just in these moments, but also in the small and quiet corners of life. I desperately desire to set up my life and home in a way that welcomes celebration everyday!

Looking forward to taking you through the small corners of my home and sharing festive pointers for creating a life that is ready for celebration throughout the year!

    What an amazing photo! I love the idea of celebrating everyday. Life would be so boring if we left the celebrations only to milestones, don’t you think? Looking forward to the series! :)
