A Quiet Spot to Enjoy Christmas

We’re in the midst of fighting the stomach flu here at our house (I hope you are healthier at yours!)…so, I am just quickly popping in to share one of my favorite little spots in my house right now.  We have this little room that connects to our kitchen that basically just has a bookshelf and small sofa and side table…my kids love to play in the room while I am cooking, and we spend lots of time reading together here.  The fireplace doesn’t work, but it still makes the room feel cozy to me.  And, I love our simple Christmas decorations here this year.

See you back here on Monday!
