I’m starting off my countdown to “goodbye” with a feature on our living room.
Is it perfectly Pinterest-able? No. But there are so many things I love about this room.
Like our set of (mostly) broken microfiber couches that we picked up for less than $100 when we first moved in.
And the way the light pours into the room in the early morning.
I love our big piece of remnant carpet that I picked up when I was in full nesting mode.
I’ll miss sharing dinners around the coffee table with my husband.
I’ll miss hanging out under the coffee table with Rocco and Lyla.
It’s in this living room where we played an epic game of “battle of the sexes” at our housewarming party.
It’s where I surprised Alex with his “dad chair” on his last birthday.
It’s where we found a naked stranger [turned out to be our neighbor] asleep on our couch after a long night of drinking.
It’s where I cried to my mom and Alex in discomfort the night before I went into labor.
It’s where I’m sitting now to write this post.
I know this kind of sounds silly, but it’s been a good
little living room to us and I am very thankful for it.
