what makes a house a home


Posted by Rebecca, November 2nd, 2010

A discussion came up on Twitter a few days ago about whether it’s better to schedule blog posts in advance or post spontaneously.  I always have a idea of what I want to talk about and I’m constantly jotting things down, but I prefer the spontaneous route. Things change by the day and sometimes a great idea comes out of the blue.  This is one of those spontaneous posts.

I logged into my Twitter feed, where I receive updates from HouseBlogs.net, which gives new posts from their group of house bloggers.  This post from The Box House popped up and I had to immediately read it.  I know I’ve mentioned losing our part Maine Coon kitty Sunny here and there, like my new appreciation for the color orange, our wedding favors or how we ended up with the cat who ruined our carpets. For the most part, I’ve tried to keep this blog house related though it’s hard not to mention something that has impacted your life as much as Sunny did.

When I started this, many of my friends reminded me that this was not indeed my first foray into blogging… my cats once had a blog, macandsunny.com.  We stopped posting after Sunny died because it just didn’t feel right.  But since I know so many people enjoyed reading it and I am thankful that it is saved forever on the internet, I figured I’d share it with my new friends.  Gives you a glimpse into us crazy people a little more 🙂

So tomorrow, I will give you my newest Sunny-inspired house addition.  For now, hug your pets, make your pets hug each other and if you have some loving words for The Box House, please head on over. I’ll leave you with this picture of Sunny’s beloved brother Macky…

Yes, he is in my wood basket and no, he does not belong there. Someone is going to end up with a splinter in their you-know-what….

They grow up so fast :::sigh:::

  1. Awwww baby pictures!!! I’m showing this to my husband the second he gets home — he’s gonna melt!

    as I type, his cat is running through the house howling for no reason at all — just how she rolls. Let me know if you ever want to cat sit 😉 lol

    BTW Macky actually looks just like his baby photo — unreal!!! <3

      Macky talks for no reason constantly… well I wouldn’t say no reason, the reason is usually that he wants attention.

      I found a baby picture of Macky alone and my gosh, he was sitting exactly like he sits as an adult. I think I’m going to have to make a large print of it. It’s amazing how his personality hasn’t changed!

  2. Love your fur babies, they are family too!

      Aw thanks Annabelle. It’s hard for me to go back and read it, but I’m thankful I have all of those memories “written” somewhere! I miss those furry white paws so much!

      Ps- love your name, so pretty!

    These are precious memories. I loved reading about your day. Enjoy because they get old way too fast. Reminded me of taking my son to the beach in Santa Barbara when we lived there when he was about Chelsea’s age. I can’t believe we are going on trips to look at colleges now. That picture of Chelsea by the post eating a slice of cantaloupe is beautiful.

    So all of these lose money. Sounds like home renovation with the intent to increase resale value is a bad investment. I’d only pursue a project if 1) the home would not sale otherwise 2) there is a risk of damage to the home without performing the work or 3) personal enjoyment.

    Hi, We remodeled our kitchen five years ago and it was one of the best decisions ever—totally worth all the headaches. I hope you love your island as much as I love mine—space for cookie baking, play dough, school work, coloring while listening to audiobooks on long winter afternoons. Oh I love mine!Home

    Living your life happily naturally sprinkles happiness around. I achieved my financial independence after 7 years of a full time well paying career. I had no complaints with my job. But i did want to quit sometime to be able to just be more available to myself, my home and my family. So now when i am soon to turn 30, i am living on my savings, am married, do not have kids, stay at home and am happy. Isn’t that the dream for most? Then why should people be jealous! But fact is, they are…Do I care? Sometimes yes, but mostly i feel grateful for being in a position that people can envy. If u are blessed to be able to do this on ur own momey, try once…it is totally worth it.

  16. Business Goals are the broad primary outcomes towards which effort and actions are directed in a business. They are whats, not hows and a business might have multiple goals to achieve. For example, “we must be a leader player and increase our share in the home loan market”. Normally there is no measurement in the definition of a goal and only gives you the general direction of the company.
