The Nester is hosting a "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful" party. She has asked everyone to post pictures of things in our life or home that are not perfect but are beautiful to us. This is a picture of our first house. It would not be considered perfect by any means with its crooked plaster walls, tiny closets, tiny kitchen and just all the little quirks that come with a house built in the forties. But it was perfect for us. This house was the first house we lived in as a married couple so it will always hold a special place in my heart.
This is a picture from Thanksgiving last year. It was imperfect in so many ways (mainly because it was at my house) but so beautiful. This was the first Thanksgiving dinner ever hosted at my house. We had over 12 people and I didn't even think about the fact that I wouldn't have enough silverware! I also had Thanksgiving decorations mixed with Christmas decorations (as you can see in the picture). Thank goodness I was not in charge of the food!! My mom came up the week before so she was able to cook a lot of the food. The most beautiful (and perfect) thing about this picture is my first nephew, Zach. He was born just a few days before Thanksgiving so that will always make this Thanksgiving special.
Head on over to The Nester to see some more examples of Imperfectly Beautiful.
