One of my favorite things about our new house when we first looked at it was the room that would become Maya’s bedroom. I knew the moment I stepped into the room that the space would eventually house a sweet little girl’s room for Maya. I turned to our real estate agent and almost in unison we said “This is Maya’s room”. Although the room is small it has a feature that I knew instantly she would love and would love for a long time to come, a huge, beautiful window seat.
It is a beautiful window seat with a large area to sit and a large window to look out. It is a comfortable little nook all her own. As I was daydreaming about what it would be like when we moved in, one of the things I often daydreamed about was that little nook. I imagined us sitting there reading books before bedtime. I imagine Maya curled up with her “guys” reading her books. I imagined how perfect and how loved that little space would become.
Already those daydreams have become reality. Just as I expected that little nook is where we sit to read stories before bed. It is the perfect size for the two of us to curl up together and read. I often find Maya sitting there with her blankie and a few “guys” reading stories. Plus, Maya has figured out that if she piles all her “guys” in there it makes a very cozy little nest 🙂
Maya loves it (as you can tell). I love it. That little window seat, that little nook, has become one of my favorite spots in the house. Now I just need to find the perfect cushion and pillows for it.
