Well said Thrifty Decor Chick:
(my favorite excerpts from this post)
I have always loved our house, but I adore it because of the effort I have put into making it what it is. What it will be. I love it because I have invested in it – not just with money, but with my time. My sweat. (And YES, many times, tears.)
The thing is – making our house our home is part of my life. My investment in our home is my time.
I LOVE doing what I do. Other than being a wife and a mom, there is NOTHING more fulfilling to me to take a before and turn it into a beautiful after. And if I can do it for little money, that makes it even better.
I love investing my time in our home. Working on our home is an investment in me.
I hope you do something that you love and that makes you PROUD of yourself.
Exactly how I feel!
