This here blog is meant to be a chronicle of my ever-changing home and my ever-changing decorating style. I understand that some people might not find decorating their homes very therapeutic. Those people are not me. As my husband once rightly noted, it seems like every time something in life changes you want to change the house. True. He has also remarked that sometimes he goes to sleep and finds that when he wakes up I have painted and redone a room. Just for fun. Yep.

So here is the goal. I want my home to be a welcoming, real, magical place. An abode. But I also want it to be bodacious: excellent, admirable, or attractive. Hence: abode + bodacious = ABODACIOUS.

See what I did there? Yeah, I’m kind of proud of it.
