How many times have you said those words when someone came to your home? I have to admit, I say those words far too many times. Why do we always apologize for our homes not looking "magazine clean"?! Homes are meant to be lived in, and while I'm sure we all desire to keep our homes clean and tidy, don't we all realize that life is messy? We should give ourselves (and others) a bit of a break.
What do you say? Let's all relax a bit and give ourselves, and everyone else, a break. Let's remember what home is really all about (hint, it's not about looking like a magazine photo, as pretty as those may be).
