A space of my own

I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to finally really set up my space. Perhaps it’s the fact that I just got my hands on a shelf that I could store supplies on or maybe it’s that I’ve had enough of NOT having my own space or maybe it’s just that the summer is ending and that means Dave is returning to work and my time to get things done is about to do a large decrease. Staying at home with a toddler definitely doesn’t mean lots of time to get things done, to work, to create. At least not in that solitary way that I was used to. Sure, we get things done, but it’s a bit different.

Without further ado, my space. Ahh. Sigh of relief. It’s a very relaxing spot (even moreso when the dehumidifier is off), it has tons of light, and I am sitting beside the outdoors which I love.

I love this space. I love this light. I love the fact that this is only a little nook down in our basement and that Dave’s “nook” is on the opposite side of this half of the room and that there is a gigantic play space for Indira. The downside? Hopefully, we’ll be moving in 5-10 months. So this will be a short-lived space. Unfortunately, even a beautiful house can’t make up for an inadequate town and the woods outside can’t make up for the fact that the woods are set in rocks (as opposed to soft soil). But this works for now.

    Hi Kyra – your space is soooo beautiful. Great windows and lighting, too! Have you joined my newsletter or subscribed to my blog? That’s probably the best way to keep up with news on Mothering with Heart. I’m so excited about it and have still been working on the pieces in my stollen moments when I’m not with my boys. It will happen though, so let’s stay connected! Thank you for your interest! More soon… xo
