#tbt to sitting in my dream home, dreaming of the next chapter in our family’s life.

Growing up, I didn’t have a “dream home” in mind, a dream closet, a certain neighborhood, a certain ideal of what my home might look like. I just wanted love. I wanted to replicate the family meals, the simple summers, and the outdoor fun I had with my mom, dad, sister and live-in grandma. We didn’t have a lot, but we had more than enough! Do you get that? Because it’s a major concept for this child or immigrant parents.

With about a month left to go until we move into a home that is truly beyond my dreams, into a neighborhood I only heard about once in a Danielle Steel book I secretly borrowed from my grandma when I was 13-years-old, and send out kids to a school that looks like it belongs in a TV show, I am reminded that: 💛

It’s not about the stones on your house, but the smiles inside your home.💛
It’s not about the number of bedrooms, but the number of bear hugs.💛
It’s not about the dream home, but dream life.
