It seems like the room that I tweak the most is our family room.
It has taken me a long time to get it to a point that I'm pretty happy with.
So I put together a little tour and a little story to share with you.
I took these pictures a few weeks ago before the leaves started to change.
It was on a day that no one else was home and I had time to "play house".
You know, the kind of day where you can tidy up and fluff up a room
and make it look all pretty.
And then pretend that this is how it looks all the time.
Because this is how you would love for it to look all of the time.
All of the pillows are plumped up and right where they
are suppose to be.
There aren't any remotes all over or crumbs on the coffee table.
The throw is draped just so over the arm of the chair.
Everything in its place.
It's heavenly for a little while.
But then something happens.
It starts to feel lonely.
You miss those special people who throw the pillows on the floor
and leave their snacks on the coffee table.
It's just not the same without anyone to share it with.
Next thing you know, those people come home, and your pretty
room returns to its perfectly imperfect life.
And all is right in the kingdom.
