While our family is moving into our new house this week (eek!), I'll be sharing some guest posts! But not just any guest posts -- this week, we'll get to nose around in other people's spaces. Haven't you always wanted to see exactly where your favorite bloggers live? In-depth snooping around where they cook or clean or play or work? I hope I'm not the only nosy one!
Today, sweet Hyacynth from Undercover Mother is showing us into a beloved space in her home. Enjoy the tour!
The light -- even during early March in Chicagoland -- spilled magnificently in through the windows.
And I thought -- if in the bleakness of winter this is the kind of sunlight streaming into the space, I could enjoy this space even though it wasn't really what I'd wanted
or layout wise
or mostly anything else wise.
That light, I'd thought, though, could make a cold foreclosed house a warm, inviting home.
And it hasn't disappointed.
I've often spread myself over the caramel-colored wooden floors during the dreariness of long winter days, simply soaking up sunlight.
found myself mesmerized by the way the light encases the entire front living room window, giving the room a gracious glow in the afternoon hours.
lingered in the way the sun highlights the photographs that have captured our family still in moments of time.
Even when the couch cover has been tossed aside for the seven hundredth time in a day or pillows and blankets and Legos and little boys are sprawled across the carpet like mini road blocks at every step -- all of which happens daily in a house with two little boys and a pup -- it's that light that can still sweep me into serenity just as it promised our very first visit.
