When I was growing up, Sunday was a special day for my family. It’s when we all dressed our nicest; when we ate the yummiest food; and it’s when our home looked the best. I always look back fondly on those Sundays because it was unlike any day of the week. More effort was put into that day than any other so it was a day to look forward to by everyone. Lately I’ve thought a lot about it and realized that Sunday homemakers are the best homemakers.
Sunday homemakers consider everyday to be special. These days, it seems like any type of homemaking is rare, especially Sunday homemaking. As old-fashioned as it sounds, there’s an importance to intentional homemaking that makes home life better for everyone. I know I’m just as guilty as everyone, but it’s very easy to just get by or do the bare minimum in our homes. Whenever I’m in someone’s home and they’ve put forth more effort to make everything lovely, I notice it and feel really special. I want everyone to feel that way when they’re in our home.
I always say this blog is just as much for me as it is for you because I want it to hold me accountable to a higher standard. This blog challenges me to be a better a homemaker–especially a Sunday homemaker! I hope it does the same thing for you. Our thoughts and our actions are what make a house a home.
Finally, in the immortal words of Laura Ingalls Wilder, “Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant and happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture and the furniture comfortable and beautiful.”
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
