My cousin Angie had the splendid idea of doing a "Favorite Room" Tag. You know, take a picture of your favorite room and tell 5 things about it. Fabulous. I have put this off a bit because my bedroom is never clean, but I realized if I waited until it was, then I would never ever do it. So here it is in it's plain, messy glory. Someday I will get around to adding some color and depth to it. But my favorite room nonetheless. And this is why:
1. We have a really nice view of the pond across from our house. It's fun to watch the geese and ducks and everyone else enjoying it on a nice night.
2. Because the recliner lives here. I just fall more and more in love with this chair as time goes on. It's so comfy and so...reclinable.
3. This is where I read.
4. I love the ambiance of a lamp and I love to turn off the light and flip on the lamp and feel cozy.
5. This room represents my retreat after the kids go to bed. I live for bedtime. I love my kids to pieces, but my alone time after they are asleep is INVALUABLE, NECESSARY, TREASURED, ETC.!This is my Mother's Day gift and I love it. Under the odd colored pillowcase is a splendid, puffy pillow that Nate got for me. And the other gift...super turbo insect killer. We kind of have a lot of bugs here, and I am especially not fond of spiders, so I am so excited to have the house sprayed down. (Sorry Leisy.) I've been called to teach the 9/10 year olds in Primary. I guess I have some experience with this type of thing having taught school, but any bits of advice or secrets would be much appreciated! My mom teaches this same age in her ward in Utah and I thought that was pretty cool.
And of course, Happy Mother's Day Mom. I love you!
