One of my favorite memories from childhood was curling up next to a window in my cozy sleeping bag and watching a rain storm. And this past week of gray skies has left me in search of ways to make my home cozier...I spoke earlier in the week about my new (but brief) practice of keeping an unmade bed. While keeping it laid back in the bedroom has upped the cozy factor in my home--I also needed a comfy spot to work (while staying motivated). So I decided to move a few pieces of furniture to make room for a chair by the window and got to work. Watching the cars and people pass underneath gray skies was the best way I've spent an afternoon at home in a while. In addition, pulling up a comfy chair next to a window is a great alternative if your home is without a window seat.
