Happy Valentine’s!

As a blogger, I check out what other bloggers are – well, blogging about. While visiting my friend Vicki’s blog, I noticed that she was reflecting on the things she loves. Tagging certain aspects of her home in pictures, using hashtags on her social pages, I noticed this even gave her a little instagram growth! It’s important to have many social media accounts when you’re a blogger, it’s vital that you’re constantly advertising your work. Whilst Vicki was able to gain more followers through hashtagging, she could’ve gained even more attention on her page if she’d have looked at more ways to get instagram followers. Having Instagram followers gives you another platform to advertise your main blog. Anyways, that all resonated with me. The fact she was sharing with everyone how much she loves her house, and how everyone agreed and admired her for that. This made me think – What do I love about my home?

I Love: The feeling of “home”

There’s a difference between a mere house and a home. Houses require investments of money; homes require the investment of soul. Home conjures feelings of belonging. Of comfort. Of safety. So, what do you love about your home?

I Love: My new window treatments

I know what you’re thinking. But really, I LOVE my new window treatments! I have gorgeous Signature Series by Budget Blinds woven woods. They add the perfect natural element to complement my beach house themed décor. And after years of trying to find just the right spot to watch television without glare, my new window treatments with blackout lining, making it a joy! No more eye strain, either. Plus, I have top-down-bottom-up option, so I can adjust how light that enters the room, too! What do you love?

I Love: Bread

Since my self-imposed moratorium on bread after 5 p.m., I really haven’t thought about bread much. The other night I was lured to the dark side when I was offered possibly the most perfect breadstick in the world! It was hot from the oven with a light layer of butter and a dusting of garlic salt on top. For me, that small bit of gooey, chewy goodness was a little bit of heaven. I enjoyed it torn morsel by glorious torn morsel.

What do you love?
