Our Home at Design Mom + A Beautiful Mess

Making Nice in the Midwest home

Well I didn’t quite expect the emotional whirlwind that hit me when I read my own words today. A friend texted me about my Living With Kids interview that went up on Design Mom today, and I though, Oh yeah! I forget what I even said in that interview… so I went over, read it all, and cried. I felt immense appreciation for my life and struggles, but also the lack of struggles we’ve faced as well. Most of all it made me feel afresh the deep gratitude I feel for our family and home.

Check out the deeply personal interview and tour of our home on Design Mom today!

And also, on a much more superficial note, check out my recent post at A Beautiful Mess about Easy Tips for a Living Room Refresh. You’ll find some fun before and after pics of our home as well as every little thing I considered in our recent living room facelift. See ya there!

    Mandi,

    I’ve read your blog for quite some time now but have never commented. I felt compelled to after reading your interview. I was so impressed with your honesty. I read bits and pieces of myself in your voice. I can completely empathize with trying to find a balance between gratefulness and complacency. especially while dealing with major health issues. The interview was beautifully written and incredibly real; it really resonated with me and I’m thankful to you for sharing it with the world. You continue to amaze me with your bravery, your humor, and your strength. Much love to you and your family!
