Some things take time…like finishing this little reading nook in our bedroom…and learning to be a good wife/mother/friend….and being pregnant for 9 months….and getting back in shape…and that list could go on and on. These days I'm learning to be patient with myself and the less than perfect, to sit back and enjoy the process, and to say to myself "some things take time".
They say the bedroom is the last place in the house to receive attention, and that's certainly been the case for us. When we bought our house a year and a half ago, I didn't have any high hopes for our bedroom. It was purple for starters….. huge (tricky if you don't have huge furniture), and there was some weird architectural aspects that I didn't love. We've come a long ways since that first impression though, and for the first time since we've been married- I really love our bedroom. Not only is it the hangout space for the family on Saturday mornings, but this little reading nook has quickly become one of my favorite places to unwind.
