Haven’t you always wanted one of those rooms that serves so many purposes and fulfills so many needs that you swear you could live your entire life in it? When I think back at all the time I have spent in this living room it brings me comfort, joy and hope. Weird, right? Read on…

In this room I have given my husband some of his most favorite gifts, I have had some of the most intimate conversations with friends and I have cried myself to sleep. In this room I have written my list of dreams, contemplated my future and played the best game of Scrabble. In this room I have warmed my frozen toes by the fire, braided my nieces hair and found my first Arizona cockroach.

Each possession in this room also has a story to tell; the Anne Rice book that I waited in line for 3 hours to be signed, the gorgeous end table that was left to us by Pete’s grandmother when she passed on and the coffee table that took us 6 months to pick out.

This room exemplifies what makes a house, a home and that’s what makes it my favorite.
