Let’s Start Things Off With A Bang!

Otherwise known as a house warming party. What makes a house a home? Perhaps it’s the family within the house that makes it a home. A family who are willing to share their house with others. A family at peace with each other and with God. A family who strive to be clean and tidy but who are also willing to forgive each other when things are get messy. A family with structure built on the principles of Scripture. A family who love and support each other. Always. A family who is willing to oppose the world and do what they believe to be right. This is what makes a house a home. This is what makes my house a home. I am grateful that I am in such a place.

Now, about that party. You know, the house warming party. Or, should we say, the blog warming party. Well, parties are usually thrown in order in celebrate something. Like a new house. Or a new blog. That’s what I’m celebrating but I need your help. Here’s what you do: you are going to create a post on your blog and somewhere in it answer one question.

The Question: What is the one most important thing to you about your home?

After you answer come back here and leave a comment with a link to your post and I will enter you in a giveaway for an Anthropologie gift card worth $25. Sound good? Good. Now for all the technical details: one(1) entry per person please. You must include in your comment a way for me to contact you, either an active blog or an e-mail address. If you do not have a blog you can still enter. Just put your answer in your comment. Giveaway is open to United States residents only. Giveaway closes at 9:00 PM eastern time on May 21st, 2011.

Good luck!

    Hey love! So technically I don’t *live* in the US, but I DO have an address for the US. Does that count? 🙂

    You are brave Caroline…I have wanted to make the leap to wordpress, but I am rather afraid of the unknown.lol What a lovely giveaway! The most important thing to me about my home is my family. They are a joy and delight, and I am very grateful for them.

    People to me are the most important. I love when the home is full of them, and it feels empty when I’m alone. (Not to mention the fact that sometimes I get scared,)

  4. The mortgage is paid off.

    My family.
    Like Lil said, without them a home would be empty and rather frightening! (and it wouldn’t really feel like home either) I guess my plan to be an old spinster won’t really work. Oh dear.

    The most important aspect of a home to me is a kitchen because delicious meals bring people together for wonderful convos and laughs. I feel blessed to have a meal to look forward to each day. Thank you kindly for the chance and happy blog warming!

    The most important thing to me about my home is my family, and the love inside it that grows each day. I am blessed to have a beautiful family. Thanks so much for the giveaway. I adore Anthropologie, and would love the GC.
