OKAY, so I exaggerated!
After being pretty unhappy about where we moved to, I started re-following Marty, who owns the blog "A Stroll Thru Life".
Her advice, was, change your mind, look at things with a different point of view. By changing your point of view your home can become your castle.
Maybe for me, it will start with the little things, like not using the dining room table as a place to store things. Actually clean it off and do a center piece.
Just because you have to down size, does not mean you give up on life. Just means, things have changed.
Marty, is a wonderful person. I only know her by following her blog, but I look forward to each new entry. I know I will learn something new. I know I will get inspired to try something new.
For now, I will trick my mind into thinking I have a castle. My tiny bathrooms will become jewel boxes, (another blog post from Marty).
another point, Marty does all her decorating on a budget, she can take something old and thru her vision make it something new.
So, if you have not discovered A stroll thru life, follow her for awhile and you to will know you live in a castle.
