What Do You Love About Your Home?


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,

I have never really thought about which room in my house is my favorite. I think it is my sewing room. It was only about 3 years ago that we converted a mostly unused bedroom to my sewing room, and it is truly my space. I understand why you love your kitchen. It is beautiful and so welcoming. It's really nice that your kitchen is truly the heart of your home.

Oh Debbie, I'm sorry you lost a family member. I will keep your family in my prayers. I can see why you love your kitchen because happy times happen there. I know that it's hard to single out one room. In fact, I can't do it! Since moving out of my house a year ago, then into my tiny apartment, and now into my new home, these moves have represented peace and contentment for me. So I loved everything about the little apartment and everything about my new home. I had some rough times in the house I sold, so the new place holds special meaning. I had the entire place remodeled, so it represents me and I love the whole place! I will be praying for you.

You have a wonderful sewing room, Sharon. I can see why it is a favorite room in your home!

Thank you for your prayers, Karen. I really appreciate that. And how wonderful that your new home represents you and gives you such joy. I am happy for you!

Oh love your kitchen - especially the "bear chair". And, isn't it great to have a kitchen that's "used". I only have room for a bar stool at the end of my counter, but it's sat on good bit too (hadn't thought about that before). Glad you're enjoying yours.
