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!
