Owning a home is a symbol of hard work and the American Dream. Over the years your home will provide comfort, happiness and security for you and your family. Whether you fell in love with your home the moment you stepped inside or are still in the midst of making changes to make it your own retreat, here are a few more ways to love and appreciate your home this year.
- Make a connection. It’s rare that your first home will be your “forever home”. The need to downsize, upsize, relocate to a new city, etc. is sometimes inevitable. Make connections to milestones that happen while you are living there, i.e. bringing a baby home, hosting holiday parties, accomplishing your first DIY project, etc.
- Contrast what makes your house home. What makes you look forward to walking in your front door at the end of the day? Reflect on the reasons your home is a retreat from the rest of the world.
