My Family Room

Posted by on Jul 10, 2013 in family room | 19 comments

As I look at the pictures of this room

I can’t help but to take a walk down memory lane. . .

We have called this house “home” now for over 12 years.

And, my how this room has evolved.

When we first moved in,

Daisy was 15 months old,

and I was pregnant with our second.

{I swore then that my next move would be to the nursing home.}

And, we added a third 2 years later.

This room has housed toy shelves,

dress up corners,

puppet stands,


art easels.

My girls are older now,

so the toys no longer take over this room. . .

This room is now where we pull out TV trays to eat dinner

while we watch movies,

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

play games on the coffee table,

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

host parties for every occasion,

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

and hang out as a family.

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is truly our “family” room.

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

A place that is full of things that are special to us.

Things that we love.

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is a cozy place for us.

That we love to share with others!

And, I know for sure that it will continue to evolve. . .

Life to the full!
