Into Our Mess

Last night, Ryan and I had our first guests. Kylie, Chance, Kara, Panda, and Otter came over to eat dinner and hang out. We had a great night eating, talking, laughing, and playing with the pups.

Besides hanging some pictures over the sofa and making the bed, I did pretty much nothing to get ready for them to come over. There were boxes and bags on the floor, the kitchen was half-painted, the buffet was stacked with platters, and we were crammed around the table. And it just didn’t matter.

So today, I’m thankful for friends and family that show up, despite our messes. It’s worth inviting people into our real life, because then they’ll invite you into theirs.

Life is good.
