As we're days away from exchanging contracts on our new home (fingers crossed), I'm now allowing myself to actually imagine us living in it. House-buying is such a nerve-wracking process. Your head tries to remain in the present until the ink is dry and the money transferred but your heart moves on the moment your offer's accepted.

I just hope that I'm not tempting fate by mentioning it, trying to plan where all of our things will go, and yes, how we'll (I'll) decorate it. Don't worry, I'm not yet at the mood board/paint swatches stage. But as you can probably imagine, I've reacquainted myself with Pinterest recently.

I often flick through glossy interiors magazines and coo over the sleek, minimal, monochrome interiors.

They're gorgeous.

And I inevitably sigh ... several times ... at the chicness of them all.

I imagine myself living in such a home.

Children come in to our lives and fill our hearts with so much joy, but on the flip side, they fill our homes with so much of everything else … toys, noise, blankets, more toys, mess, books, bottles, and even more toys. It’s amazing how many things you accumulate when you have children and your home can change beyond recognition.
