Good things take time | A Spring Journal

For months, it seemed as though spring was hiding, unwilling to be coaxed or persuaded to appear, despite my best attempts. Spring is content to show itself in its own time. We have transitioned from the cold, dark days of winter to the sweet embrace of the warmer seasons. I have packed away all signs of winter, swapping out heavy throws for light linens and wool sweaters for floral dresses. As the weather warms up and the days lengthen, we are inspired to take on new projects. For many of us, this means turning our attention to homemaking.

Our planter bench has some new mint leaves growing.

Homemaking is one way to embrace the spirit of spring. I’d like to encourage you to take a closer look at your daily routines and find ways to streamline them for simplicity. Whether cooking a meal from scratch, folding laundry, cleaning out your closets, or planting a small garden, these tasks will require a certain level of care and patience. We can create a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment by taking the time to do these tasks.

Of course, homemaking isn’t about creating a beautiful space. It’s also about caring for the people and things that matter the most. As a homebody at heart, I’ve always believed that homemaking is about creating a space that feels comfortable, peaceful, and well-loved. But sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of everyday life and forget to nurture our homes. Taking the time to plan and execute with care will result in a space that feels intentional and purposeful. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

  1. Start small. Don’t try to tackle too much at once. Focus on one room or task at a time.
  2. Take breaks. Homemaking tasks can be tiring, so make sure to pause and rest when needed.
  3. Celebrate progress. Take time to acknowledge how much you have already accomplished, even if it’s small.
  4. Don’t compare. It’s easy to compare our homes and homemaking skills to others but remember that everyone’s journey is different.
  5. Enjoy the process. Learn from your mistakes, and keep trying. Homemaking can be both a rewarding and joy-filled experience.

As we move into the spring season, remember the approach to homemaking may be slow, but good things take time. The result will be all the more rewarding. I hope these tips help you in your homemaking journey.

Until next time,

  1. That’s the wonderful thing about Spring, it brings a sense of freshening up, and clearing spaces where in Fall and Winter were nesting. I haven’t made a “from scratch” breakfast in a while …unless you count eggs (LOL) but Sunday dinner ..that’s my jam. I will take the time to prepare a meal and be happy with what I’ve accomplished. — Wye (Oh..How is Baby, growing fast I bet)
