Hello everyone! Today, as we continue in this month of all things love, I'm contemplating what I love about our home. My mind is doing a visual inspection room by room as I think about this and I can honestly say there is a lot to love about our home. If I focus on a favorite room to love, it would have to be our kitchen.
I can honestly say that our kitchen is truly the heart of our home and I love that! We spend a lot of time here. Of course, we prepare meals in this space. But, we also sit and talk as we have a comfy bear chair in here in addition to comfortable ladder back bar stools. Sometimes we watch tv or The Mr. sits at the counter and talks to me while I cook dinner or I sit and talk to him while he cooks. The counter is also my craft space when I need to lay things out.
As I have mentioned in earlier posts, it took a long time to renovate our kitchen. A total of about fourteen months. So when we finally got it finished we truly were ready to appreciate it! And we really do "live" in this space a lot and find it to be very enjoyable.
The bear chair didn't start out in the kitchen but, somehow, over time it migrated here and it is sat in each and every day by someone in our family (including fur members). I love this chair and looked at it in a store for several months before "suggesting" to The Mr. that it would be the perfect retirement gift for me. I'm so glad I made that suggestion! It has a matching footstool that we use in our living room. We tried using the footstool in the kitchen but felt it was a tripping hazard so it lives happily in our living room for now.
While I love many rooms in our home, the kitchen is certainly dear to my heart. What room is most loved in your home?
Be sure to stop by the blog on Saturday, February 12th, when I will be participating in another blog hop. This one is for Valentines Day and I think you will really enjoy it. I know I am running posts close together but, oh well. That's the way I roll sometimes.
I would also appreciate your prayers. We lost a family member last week and it has been a bit rough as my whole family mourns our loss. Blessings to all of you dear readers.
Until Next Time,
