our spot.

Does your family have a spot or room in your house where most everything happens? the central location of all that’s going on most happens _______ (fill in the blank).

Well we do.

It’s funny because when we first looked at our house this is the space that caused most confusion in our heads because we just didn’t know what we were going to do with it. Half of the room is our kitchen and the other half is a big open space with fireplace and doors going out to the patio. Would we put our TV in this room, our couch, kitchen table, leather chairs? I think we thought through just about every piece of furniture except our bed! Even on move-in day we switched it around a few times…left it…and then switched it back.

Then… we got it.

And now it’s by far my favorite room in the house. I love what we decided for the contents: leather chairs, buffet table, desk and book shelf aka “mom central”, my crate shelf and a nice soft rug. But more than the contents I love what the room has become because of what goes on here.

Reading time, dance parties (sadly far too often to Justin Bieber), star wars battles, lego building, baby everything, run way for style shows, computer time, school time, sing-a-longs, family devotions, quiet times and bedtime stories. This is the place where it all happens.

This room just makes me happy and already is filled with so many wonderful memories.

So where do you and your family most hang out?

  1. What a happy room you have! You must be feeling like this house is *home* now. Home-making really is a challenge and an art, isn’t it?

    As for our family, we spend a lot of time in baby HP’s nursery, which is tucked away in a corner of the house, but it’s loaded with sunlight and our most beloved children’s books, so we all end up in there together more than I ever would have expected when we first moved in.
