I don't know what it is about the start of school, and the resuming of packing lunches and un-packing of backpacks (seriously, do they leave ANYTHING at school?? i mean, besides their hoodies, and water bottles, and...) but i start to fall in love with my house again.
This isn't anything new. Maybe fall is my spring. My re-birth. Who knows. Maybe it's just the re-claiming of space that has been occupied by boys non-stop for 3 months straight. Whatever it is, this is about the time I take a look around and go, wow. This is right. This is home.
Standing at the sink tonight, it came upon me like a ton of bricks - that peaceful, cozy feeling. I took this picture (even with the clean dishes that i haven't put away just in view - well at least the colander looks happy there) because it was this simple site that made me happy.
It isn't anything great. It's an old bowl full of fruit for lunches, the back of an old jadeite plate that i put in that stand to hide the ipod stand and remote from the family room side. It will be replaced by something fabulous soon...i promise.
I think i might even have an idea of what i want to do there...click the link and visit her site...isn't this divine? Shannon at Bless This Nest has the warmest home and the greatest ideas.

I'm not the mom you see at school and envy because she's in a cute outfit and looks pulled together. I'm the one with toilet paper trailing behind her on her shoe, cell phone ringing in the middle of the school play and can't find her car in the school parking lot. I make you feel better about you, just by watching me.
