I desire that our home would be open and inviting...where family, friends are always welcome. Parties are thrown, Thanksgiving dinner is served, even if that means we are packed in like sardines. The more the merrier! Safe and Secure. A place to be real. An expression and extension of our personalities. Cozy and Comfortable. Full of laughter. Where most of all we feel free to be just us.
