Real Small Living Snapshots

You may have seen the living room and kitchen tours I posted in my Small Living Series in March. I loved writing about and organizing our home for those posts! As I mentioned in that series, those photos depicted a clean and organized space, and that is obviously not always the case.

To keep it really real around here I thought I’d share some photos of what our apartment looks like today. If your home is disorganized and a mess, I hope this reminds you that your value lies within who you are - a beloved child of God. And if your home is perfectly curated and smelling of fresh lemons, I hope this reminds you the exact same thing. The condition of your heart matters much more than the condition of your home. Thank God for that because the current condition of my home leaves much to be desired.

The best thing about this photo is my Mother’s day flowers! Hope you can spot them among the business.

That on the table is part of a bugger sucker beside our drinking glasses, Graham has a cold so it’s been getting lots of action. Gross.

On the cleanest of days, I do not like this area of our kitchen… you can imagine how I feel about it now.

Lastly, here’s the door, which I stepped out of to relax in the sun with Graham, leaving the messiness behind without a second thought.
