The Learner Observer

For about 20 or so days I have been writing about things that make our house a home, and occasionally moments that make our house a home.  This is not a thing, and it’s not really a moment.  It’s a chore!  A real life chore.


Why and how does a chore make anything better?  Because we do it together, my husband and I.  Yes, even laundry is a good thing these days.  By no means am I saying that I enjoy laundry – no one I have ever met enjoys it!  What I’m saying is that I love being able to do things for and in our home that seem so mundane and ordinary.  This is the newlywed in me talking right?  It must be… And who knows, maybe I’m just writing this to remind myself years from now that I once enjoyed these moments shared folding clothes with my husband.



More 31 days here.

    Treasure those moments. Years down the road, when the socks are no longer white and the laundry piles expand faster than a waistline at a Thanksgiving feast, you can refer back to this post and remember. :)

      It sounds like those words are all too true, and I LOVE your analogy of laundry piles expanding faster than a waistline! HAHA Thanks so much for your comment!
