Feels like home to me.

We moved about 5 months ago and I absolutely love my new house! But, because it's taken a lot longer then I thought feel like this is my home. Probably because it took a few months to rent our townhome the stress of two mortgages limited what we could do to make this house feel more home-y. I thought just by having Thanksgiving and Christmas here it would feel like home but, it wasn't until I went away for a few days and came back that it sank in. This is my home! Not just a house I live in but, the place I share with my family. We will grow old together in between these four walls. There will be millions of memories made around the kitchen table, deep conversations, many laughs in this living room and tons of sweet moments putting our kids to bed and getting them up in the morning (isn't that every parents fav. moments of the day?) Having my work and home in the same space can be really challenging but, I feel like I'm really growing and putting boundaries in that will help sustain me as a photographer long-term. From now on...ohh this is a hard one to say out loud...I'm not going to turn on my computer on Sundays. YIKES! I'm realizing that anything people email me about on Sunday can wait until Monday morning and if it can't wait then they have my cell number. I need a break from working and a solid day with my family. I'll keep you posted on how this goes in my busy season. (P.S. You know this means no blogging on Sundays anymore -bulp!)

I want the time that I give to the business to be intentional and the time I give to my husband and family to be wholehearted, not distracted. You know what I mean? I'm praying that I'll grow in both areas.

Anyone else work from home? Any pointers? I'd love to hear what you've learned.
