When I relocated to Germany last month, I asked some of my favorite people to hop on my blog, decor8, for a few weeks and share a few of their favorite things. If you’d like to view these posts, please click here. I was surprised and amazed by their picks – surprised because I guess I didn’t expect some of the favorites they’d highlighted and amazed in that each contributor attached so much sentimental value to their chosen items. When it comes right down to it, it appears as though our favorite things are always the ones that cannot be easily replaced (or replaced at all), doesn’t it? Wouldn’t this be a great idea for a magazine column by the way?
And so I’m putting the question out there for you to answer… what are some of your favorite things? What can you not live without in the home? A prize ribbon you’d won, your high school yearbooks, a gift from your child, your great grandmother’s quilt? Dig deep on this and try to list at least 5 things if you can, and be as specific as you’d like. I think it’s important to evaluate what you love and what is special to you because it makes your home life feel more cozy and rich. Often, we pass by sentimental possessions all day long and forget the stories that make them special. Try to remember if you’d like… Ready?
