Welcome to the start of my 31 Day Challenge for the month of October, founded by Myquillyn Smith from Nesting Place.
She has a motto that is the theme of her blog and recently published book:
"It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful."
My home is not perfect, and some areas aren't even beautiful. I am not trying to capture magazine-like layouts of precisely staged rooms, although I appreciate the time, detail, and artistic talent that contributes to those great interiors. These 31 days are about creating images that portray what home means on a universal level -- comfort, safety, nourishment, and family. The biggest challenge for me will be turning our everyday, practical space into something portrait-worthy (with my everyday, amateur Iphone camera).
Thank you for visiting! I hope you feel at home.
