For the past six years or so, I have been following Mix and Match Mama’s blog and while I’ve always enjoyed reading her link ups, I’ve never participated. This year, however, she started a new monthly linkup with her friend Erika called “Let’s Look” where bloggers take a little peek at little things in your life.
I thought this was such a fun idea! I plan to participate each month which means there will be an extra post some weeks. I hope you enjoy following along!
This month’s topic was “let’s look at the coziest spot in your house” and for me, this was a no brainer. The coziest spot in my house is right here.
This little corner of our oversized couch from Costco. Which, let’s be honest, most often looks like this. Just keeping it real around here – ha! 😉
Our house does have a more traditional living room but when we moved in, Justin and I decided to use this little den space for our couch and TV instead of create an office or dining room. Now it’s also where we keep LJ’s toys and since we rearranged the ottoman and added a baby gate to block off the wide doorways, it’s become a playroom as well.
The oversized chaise lounge means there is plenty of room for pillows and a huge cozy plush blanket. It’s the perfect place to lounge and read a book or cozy up and watch TV. It’s even big enough for Justin to have room to sit next to me when we’re watching a movie or Macie to snuggle up next to me while I’m reading.
My spot is positioned next to a wide doorway so I can see this little table set up in our hallway where I often have a candle going. Is there anything cozier than a snuggly blanket, a book, and a candle burning?
Actually, yes! Just add a Christmas tree. NOW it’s the coziest. 🙂 I so loved having this view all December and am just sad I didn’t really take a picture from this spot until I had already taken most decorations down. (And the book recommendation also came from Mix and Match Mama – thanks Shay!)
While not technically taken from the actual couch, here’s what my view often looked like this season. ❤
Since we spend so much time in this room as a family, my spot is also home to LJ’s diaper caddy because who says a spot can’t be cozy and practical? It sure makes life easy when we’re all hanging out here.
This spot is where I get lots of good reading done. It’s where I cry watching This is Us. It’s where I curl up when I need an afternoon nap. It’s where I get lots of snuggles when LJ isn’t feeling well. It’s even where I wrote this very blog post. It is my very favorite spot in the house and it is definitely the coziest.
Even Macie agrees!
What is the coziest spot in your house?
