31 Days of Making a Home

One of my favorite bloggers has a tradition. Each year during October she chooses a topic and blogs about it for 31 days. It is a challenge to write, and a challenge to think. I have thought about it for the last few years, but never followed through. This year I feel compelled.

I will be joining The Nester in my own 31 days…the topic?

We recently moved into a new house. This is the sixth house we have lived in since we got married 6.5 years ago. With each house I find myself lacking the motivation more and more to create a home. But part of who I am as a woman is creating spaces of nurturing and warmth.

This year I am challenging myself to take the month of October to make this house a home. Not only physically, but emotionally. I have lots of ideas up my sleeve, and I can’t wait to share them with you!

I hope you will come along for the journey,

~ Melissa

  1. Whoo boy, am I with you! We’ve moved a lot since we got married, and I’m deeply tired of renting. I haven’t even unpacked everything in this house, and we’ve been here 2 years. I look forward to reading about your stories of making a house a home.


  2. This sounds great! And very much like what I am also blogging about for the next month, except I am a newlywed, and have very little to bring into our new home. Writing and doing will be challenges for sure. Look forward to seeing your ideas!


  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to
    get the hang of it!


  4. I like this web site it’s a master piece! Glad I observed this on google.
