My goal has always been to have a home that is welcoming and that makes people feel comfortable to come over for dinner or even just stop by unannounced. Part of that welcoming atmosphere comes from my roommates; I have been blessed to live with some truly amazing women over the past 5 years who have encouraged me, cried with me during tough times (read: breakups), and helped me host countless theme parties. Now that one of my roommates is getting married in March, I've been searching for a new girl to fill her spot.
It's intimidating to look for a new roommate! I posted the above picture of my living room on social media and asked all of my friends to like it, share it, and help spread the word. After a couple of days, we had five girls interested in moving in! From zero to FIVE! I was excited, but also terrified. I feel like I hosted a mini "rush" at my house for potential roommates. Part interview, part house tour… we talked with potential roommates, showed them around and tried to get to know them in a short amount of time. Stressful!
I'm happy to report that I think we have found a girl who will be a great fit for our house! The Lord is sovereign and knows exactly who we need and His timing is always perfect. I'm so excited for this next chapter in our house and, of course, can't wait to host our first party together. Happy Monday, indeed!
