Our Favourite Sounds of the Home

Pin it button big

One of the fun discussions we had this weekend during our ATLA BBQ was everyone sharing one of their favourite sounds in (or around) the home. We don't always realize it, but it's the subtle audio cues that make home your home...

My own top ten sounds in the home include:
1.) the sound of the vacuum hitting an especially dirty patch
2.) cat or dog yawns
3.) ripping open a freshly baked baguette in half
4.) dress shoes against the concrete of our front stairs
5.) gurgling garden fountains
6.) removing the seal off a new jar of Nutella
7.) Emily saying "hello?" from the bottom of the stairs when she returns back from work
8.) the sound of stacking books
9.) walking or driving slowly over crushed gravel
10.) the sound of soft wind through the bathroom window
