Have you ever walked into someone’s home and the entry hall started talking to you?
This is one of those entries. It talks to me.
We’ve all heard that a home’s entrance should tell visitors a bit about who lives there. It should make a statement about you, your family and who you are.
Well, Jordan’s entry definitely makes a statement and it says a fun-loving, color-loving family lives here!
*Minor departure from the subject of entries...If you’ve read this blog for a while you may have realized I don’t write much about Halloween. I don’t dislike Halloween per se. I’ve just never decorated much for the holiday. I tend to decorate for Fall in general. But with 4 kids, I have made my share of costumes!
Anyway, when I saw Jordan’s metal Jack ‘O Lantern bucket I knew I wanted one. If you stretch it a bit you might say I needed one. TJ Maxx? I’m there! Well, actually I sent my daughter but either way I now have my own.
I mean, honestly! If you’re going to decorate for Halloween who can pass up a hammered metal Jack ‘O Lantern?
Back to entries…
This is what Jordan’s talking entry says to me:
- A family lives here.
- A family loves here.
- A precious bundle of joy lives here.
- Someone loves bold color.
- Someone loves to decorate.
- Someone loves bold pattern.
- Someone likes to paint. (Or has a sister that does)
- Someone likes Mackenzie Childs.
- Ask her where she found that jack ‘o lantern.
- You definitely want to see more of this house.
I definitely want my entry to make a statement about me and my family. Above all, I hope it says WELCOME. Right now it says “someone needs to clean off the dining room table.”
What does your entry say about you? What do you want it to say?
