So yesterday, I was reading Nicole's blog, In These Small Moments, and she had Kris from Pretty All True guest posting. Kris wrote about how as a child she never really wanted to go home, but now, as an adult with a family of her own, it's always great to go home (you should go read her post. My summery is suck-o compared to her beautiful prose). It got me thinking about how much I love our home. So I thought I would take you on a tour of my home one room at a time. Sort of a series every now and then.
I wanted to create that happy, comfy feeling here when Cort and I bought this house. Everyone thought I was nuts painting the walls such a dark blue, but I needed it to be warm and dark at night. At the same time, I wanted it to be bright and cheery during the day, so we got light wood furniture, white trim, and bright primary colored accents. The room isn't big, but it's comfy and cheery--even when I'm home sick in bed.
Missy!!!), and I can't ever take old pictures down, so I just keep adding. So what used to be our nice, clean vanity, has turned into a showcase of family photos.
