Well this is not an essay about what ‘home’ is but I just have always had this urge to write about our home so many times, each time I step into it, it brings life and peace and calmness into me. Each bit of it, the way we have designed it, the colours mango shake or golden apple, azure sky or spruce up, all bring in the same pleasant sense of being ‘at home’.
We have earlier stayed at many rented places and decorated each with our love and attention as best as possible but the beauty of this place is in its every detail, each detail is about us. We had then itself made rounded edged furniture and made sure that the switches and points were higher than crawling height thinking of our lil bundle of joy and now it thrills me when I see him all over the place making each corner his own in his own simple curious ways. We planned an open kitchen and he simply loves it. There are two open shelves just at his height where I have now kept his spoons bowls cups and vessels to play with because he copies whatever we do. Then we have this tv unit with open box shelves which has his toys and books on display so they are easily accessible to him. The place looks a little busy but each day I feel happy to put his strewn toys and books back alongside hubby enjoying some tv time which is a luxury in itself 😉
It’s funny how we tend to discover more places in the same premises to enjoy the home even more. The other day we had our morning tea on the balcony with the table repositioned so we are in hearing distance when baby wakes up. And then yday I laid down an outdoor mat and Yuki was super excited to play with his lego blocks there. We recently got some plants and papa beta love watering those together. Just a day ago he felt like and simply plucked away all the huge Dahlia blooms and then seeing my frown, put those back in the pot trying to stick back the flowers onto the stem 😀 and that’s the innocence we cant match as we ‘grow up’.
There is this pair of bird keyholders with their own lil homes and he knows when we are out the birdies are out and when we home them home. They have whistles in their tails and he learnt so quick to use that too.
There are these moments he spends chasing around his chachu and mausi and all his grandparents, which vibrates so much more positivity and love all around.
With His grace and everyone’s love and blessings, every nook and corner is emerging and changing and growing anew fresh with love and energy each day, and am ever so grateful for all these moments here that makes this place ‘our home’..
And this is the mail I had written to our close friends just after shifting and I am glad to say the feeling continues…
Thank u !
