Do you live in your dream home?

I would strive to live more simply.  For real.  Several years ago, my theme word for the year was "Simplify".  I focused mainly on eliminating things from the house that we didn't use, love or need.  It took me all year to go through every nook and cranny in this tiny house.  It felt pretty good.  The past few years my theme words haven't been as impressive and, some days, I feel like I'm getting swallowed up into all the things I think I need to be doing to "fix" areas in the house.   I recently read an article at Holy Spirit-Led Homeschool on this very topic:
Really, the ideas talked about in the article are not anything new but sometimes we all could use a refresher.  No, my home is not my dream home in any form or fashion.  It was supposed to be our starter home, which we would sell after 10 years (so . .it should be on the market . . now!).  Instead, it has become our Home. The place where we raise our kids, laugh, and have fun.  We have done a lot of work in this house to turn it into a place that works for the four of us and still have some projects to do but slowly, it is becoming the almost perfect house.
