On the Landing


two hundred and ninety five

Until today, this landing at the top of the front stairs was a holding dock for unpacked boxes and other “where can I put this for now?” items from our move. I made a big-effort push to finish unpacking the last of the boxes today, and once I did it was clear that the space could be so much more useful.

I pillaged the other rooms in the house to furnish this little reading nook. A couple of chairs, a blanket, a plush friend…and a selection of books, carefully curated by Mama herself. What more could the girls need?

It’s a bit sparse at the moment and might get some redecorating down the road. Or it might not. Time will tell if this little spot is loved or forgotten. In either case, it is a whole lot nicer looking than a hallway full of boxes!
