Consider this post a milestone marker. A quick moment to revel in your accomplishments and feel grateful for everything you've got going great in your home right now. (Even if your home isn't "finished" yet.) Why a post to ponder over how far your home's design and DIY projects have come? So you don't skip over these important, timely moments of enjoyment on your ambitious, never-ending quest to complete your dream home.
So let's have it! What have you accomplished with your home since moving in that fills you with pride? What furniture or art pieces have you added that just thrill you through and through? Did you tackle the January Cure...and have managed to keep your home in order since then? Have you finally mastered a cleaning schedule that works for you?
I'll start: Since moving in two months ago, I've got all major furniture pieces purchased, found or thrifted, and I've got a solid plan for slowly adding in the accessories I still want to see happen. I've got all my art hung. I've got all my curtains in every room. It's finally starting to feel like a home, and I'm very grateful.
Remember: Let's not focus on what you've got left to do...mention the things you have done instead. (Believe me, I wanted to add a, "but I still have ____ left to do" at the end of every item in the paragraph above!)
