So I am home all day as a "stay - at - home" mom. But most days we leave and go out and about so it is hard to consider myself "stay-at-home." However, when we are home I love having our front door open. The big heavy door..not the storm door...or what is it they call it. But by having it open, I feel like I am part of the world. The outside light enters our house more and I feel welcoming. My boys and I go for lots of walks and we have neighbors that leave their front doors and garages open all the time...whether they are there or not. Then there are some neighbors that I have never seen their front door open or their garage. I would love to know...are you an open that front door and let the world know you are home (which can bite you in the ass if the Kirby man comes a knocking) or do you keep your door closed all the time? If you keep it closed...why? Maybe I should have mine closed. Is it a safety thing? a heat loss thing? a privacy thing? or do you just not think about it. I am dreading the winter because it is smart to keep it closed to keep the heat in but then I feel sooo isolated. Would love to hear your front door philosophy.
