We have lived in our home for three years! I say that with some amazement, as these years have really flown by. For Thanksgiving, we moved the dining set into the dining area for the first time since living here. I do not like eating on carpet, so we were using the dining area as a sitting room and eating in the kitchen nook. Well, I finally decided to give moving into the dining area atry now that we are all over 14 and I really love it. We have a lot more room. And as an added bonus, I have a room in my home that stays pretty clutter free, too. We all need that one room! Here are some pictures. It certainly is not fancy, but it makes me so happy to have this dedicated space. I did not know what I was missing.
