Welcome to the blog! This is the place where I share more about myself, my likes, my work, my thoughts and honestly just all the things. I hope you find yourself welcome! If you were in my home, I’d make sure you had a great cup of freshly-brewed coffee and a seat on the comfiest chair in the house: our hand-me-down laz-y-boy recliner.
Now, this recliner is not the prettiest chair you have ever seen. It was one of those friend of a friend’s grandmother has an old chair that “still has some life left” and “do you want it?” kind of things. I was actually pretty disappointed when I saw it. It has faded wooden arms and dated (somewhat stained) fabric. But you could tell it was still sturdy and we were a little desperate and short on cash at the time, so we kept it.
5 years later and it is now the most coveted chair in the house. This chair is the first chair sat in for morning coffee and the last one used before heading off to bed. It has helped soothe two of our 3 children as newborns and now gives them endless entertainment as they rock back and forth in it as fast as they can or push the recliner back as far as it will go. It’s the seat I sit in when I need to be still or the one my husband uses to work from home. It adds character and warmth to our space. It is so much a part of our rhythm of life that I will be sad to see it go when it has finally broken from it’s daily use.
So, I will offer you a seat in our most treasured chair, hoping it’s warmth and character will help you will feel at ease and welcome as we get to know one another and dig down deep. I am happy you are here and can’t wait to get to know you!
