It's A New Year, "Make Everyday A Happy Day"!

Hope everyone had a wonderfully blessed Christmas! Ours was fantastic! As we look forward to the new year, we are setting our goals. And while reading, perusing, and looking for inspiration for all of the projects we need to complete in our new home, I came across this quote. "Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it" -Ellen Goodman. And I thought, wow this is so true! We get so caught up in this circle that we forget to just "really live" in our home, along the way. However, we don't want a vacant home. We don't want to be a part of that circle. We want to "really live" in our home and slow down to enjoy the moment. We want to "make everyday a happy day". This is what we are working towards. This is our ultimate goal. Afterall, that is why we purchased our new home which led to the name of our blog, Our Family Inspired Home. As for the work on our home, we finally, have all areas of our home livable (for those who are new to our blog, we purchased a foreclosed home that was empty for a few years and needs a lot of work). We have had a new furnace and central air system with all new duct work installed, have one major project in our home (Kitchen Renovation Part 1, Kitchen Renovation Part 2, Kitchen Renovation Part 3) almost complete, and all other rooms are usable (although, not pretty yet :) ). So, although there is still so much more to do, we are striving to "live" in our new home, slow down to enjoy the moment, and "make everyday a happy day".

Thanks for visiting Our Family Inspired Home!

We would love for you to follow us!
