Now that we're packing up Elderberry Street it's losing it's homey feeling.
I hate to take down all of the "stuff", not because there's SO MUCH of it, well maybe a little. Basically because it loses it's feeling of home; the familiarity, the memories, the comfort.
Good memories are essential to making a house feel like a home.
Filling it with family and friends that you love. This was DD2's Ugly Christmas Sweater party.
There's that feeling of peace and calm.
It will take awhile. My DD2 thinks it will take FOREVER, for the new place to feel like ours.
All I know is, we've done it all before. This is house number 10, I believe, not including four apartments. They always manage to feel like home, hopefully sooner than later. What helps you feel like home in your house?
