What’s a hope chest? A hope chest is a chest, normally made out of moth-repelling cedar, that an unmarried woman stores items such as linen in anticipation for marriage. Girls store a wide variety of things in them, however! In mine, I have mostly kitchen items – as the kitchen will be my favorite room in my future house. 😉 Today I have to share with you a bit of the history behind hope chests and a interview with one of my very dear friends!
A while ago, I interviewed a friend of mine on hope chests. I also included a history on hope chests, which you may go back and read if you’re interested. However, I’m going to start my own hope chest series! Since my St. Augustine series is wrapping up, (and because I’ve wanted to do this for a long time), I’ve decided to start an entire series on what is in MY hope chest.
