One of the things I love about Winter is the cozy intimate settings it creates, especially if you live in a small farmhouse like ours. Because we use a wood burning fireplace as our primary heat source, we spend lots of homey evenings by the fire.
Since it’s the warmest room of our home, we’ve taken to eating dinner in there as well. We have a small round end table that we pull up to eat on. Even though the table is a little too small for dining, we make it work because we love being in the room so much.
Jane Austen once said, “There’s nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” I’m going to go one step further and say there’s nothing like staying in one room of your home for real comfort–especially if it’s the warmest room of your home!
Even our Siberian husky, Aries, who wants to spend all his time outside during the day, likes it in our living room in the evening. After dinner when we snuggle under our faux fur blankets to watch a movie, Aries is right there between us. It’s his favorite place to be–warm, safe, and comfortable. He’s asleep immediately!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
