Aren't these white spaces gorgeous? I love clean, minimalistic spaces with not much clutter and a super clean, relaxed feel. It's nice to have a blank slate to either to draw upon or use to be inspired and not destracted.
It's got me thinking about how much I appreciate white space in our lives, and look forward to having more. It's made me realize that I'm a tiny bit glad things got postponed with our move, because it's given me time to think out our next home. We found a little house we both loved back in October when we thought we'd be moving right away. And it's just that....little. It's got a lot of what we want, and not exactly enough of what we need. I think if we had moved in October, we might have rushed ourselves into a decision we could have regretted. We had clutter in our lives- personally, I was in a tough place emotionally. Our marriage was going through a pretty rough spot. We still had a little bit more to pay on our student loans, and we were nearing the end of a peak season for home sales. We could have been dealing with a lot of clutter emotionally and physically.
So I'm thinking there's a plan in all this. Actually, I know so. We've been given some space to clear out some clutter, and clear out we've done. I've experienced grace and peace and conviction in a new way. Our marriage has had some time to heal. We're a couple months away from being completely debt free aside from our mortgage, and we have a better overall perspective on the entire move situation. We realized we needed more space than the house we loved had to offer (it was tiny, tiny) and that has allowed us to broaden our horizon, on purpose. So while I adore the white space designs up there, I appreciate even more the white space that our lives are working towards. Less clutter, less to shuffle through.
