Home sweet home

Dawn • I'm really content with the house and the community I live in. It's a lovely family home, and the boys and I have got so many great memories here. We've had so much fun in the house.

And I've been really lucky to find nice things to make it feel homey that haven't been expensive. Or my dad has helped me build some things from scrap, like a coffee table out of wood pallets. I keep my eyes out for sales. Certainly, we can't afford luxury things, but that's not what make a home sweet anyway. Live. Love. Laughter. We have loads of all three here.
