For the past five years Myquillyn Smith, The Nester, has been encouraging women to embrace the home they are in. She s known throughout the blogging world as The Nester and writes a blog called Nesting Place, a site from which she wants readers to leave with hope, motivation, and inspiration for their homes. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and three boys, their hockey paraphernalia, and plenty of brown dog hair. Everything in their house is washable, destroyable and imperfect. They have moved thirteen times in eighteen years of marriage. They are renters. And they love their home.
