It was so surreal coming home. I know my house inside and out but I felt like I was having an out of body experience- going through all of the cabinets and closets! I have stuff!!! A LOT of stuff! In Santa Monica, I got so used to living with the minimum. It was actually nice- I remember watching an episode of Oprah (love her!) where they toured different houses around the world. I believe it was the Swedish family that had virtually no possessions. They had a beautiful home- absolutely stunning design. But no knicknacks, no pillows on the couch, no magazines on the coffee table- bare!
When Oprah asked what it was like…the husband replied….“Less stuff, more LIFE”
That has stuck with me ever since and I think I finally understand. I did have a full life without being attached to a lot of possessions. Now that I’m home and realized that I have 3 closets full of clothes…I am conflicted. What can I say…I like options! lol
And of course…I missed my babies more than ANYTHING. Look how cute she is!! squeeellll!
I am also loving my the familiarity of my old routine.
