Leaving the Hobbit House

We're leaving our home here in less than three weeks, and my house is starting to look like it.  I rather wish it looked more like it, for that would mean that I've accomplished more! 

I'm feeling like Bilbo Baggins, happy in my hobbit dwelling and thinking with some trepidation about an as-of-yet-unknown adventure awaiting me.

Some of my favourite places in our house:

My little cooking corner, just the right size, with everything in easy reach.

Quiet time, bedtime, a perfect space for a small person who wants to snuggle or sleep --and I love her tiny place, too!

Chilled evenings with friends and family are the best here in our dark, fairy light-draped, red-painted living room, relaxing and enjoying each other's company. The kids love reading here during the day; it can be an oasis of calm in the midst of our noisy house.

Meals around this table, or card games late at night with friends. There's always a homemade candle burning at the centre of the table when we're sitting down together.
