curl up and get cozy.

I absolutely adore window seats. I love any place that allows me to curl up with a good book and relax. And following in my footsteps, Andrew is always looking to "get cozy," as he so perfectly puts it. (Especially today, when he is home sick for the first time since starting school, we need to grab some fuzzy blankets and rest. Didn't take too long to catch a cold, did it?!) While I do not have a window seat in my house at the moment, I will never stop wishing for one until I have it. :) I remember when I was in high school, my mom had a window seat built in my bedroom... it was amazing, complete with heavy white bookcases flanking all sides of it, so the seat was tucked right into the middle! I can picture myself sitting there on rainy days, peeking out my white paned window at the drizzle coming down.
And while it is still very warm here in my corner of the world, I am imagining the days in which I will be listening to the rain once again. Those days can't come soon enough, in my humble opinion.
Now if I could just have my window seat, things would be perfect. For now, I will settle for my cozy bed pushed against the window with lots of cute pillows in an attempt to re-create that same feeling. :)
Autumn, hurry up and get here! And bring the rainclouds with you!!

I hope you all enjoy a cozy Tuesday as well... now I am off to read lots of our many checked out library books to my little one while we go through lots of kleenex and kisses! :) xo!
PS.
Tomorrow I will have a fun list of some great kids books for you to check out from the library!

Holly- Window seats are one of my favorite things, too! We have two of them in our home and I am so glad that I had them put in!:) You are so lucky to have had one in high school. So dreamy! Your Mom knows all about lovely creature comforts! She is so special! (And so are you!) Lori

I LOVE window seats.....although lately here it would be like being under a magnifying glass! You'd get burned for sure!

Hope Andrew feels better soon. Nothing worse than the first "school" cold of the year!

Oh that looks like a cozy little window nook...that's on my list of 'wants' for our next house too, tee hee. Hope Andrew is feeling better asap! Can't wait to see your list of books too.
