We have been in THE CONDO for a little over 1 year, and it is still a work in progress. The latest work is the throw pillows. I love them, and I love how they cover up the couch that I want to replace so much. BUT, my little ones just act like little HATERS toward those throws.
A few months ago, I started placing them in a little corner of our family room. I imagined it as a reading nook. I think I even sat and read there once before it became the new hangout for the sisters.
Usually the nook escalates to a blanket and chair fort, which I am totally ok with. I am just glad that we have another little place for the posse to hang.
