I have a spot. And I spend more time there than any other spot on earth. A lot of things happen at this spot. Not only do I prepare meals but I serve meals AND eat my meals standing in this spot. This long stretch of dirty, dented and worn kitchen floor is MY spot. A command central of sorts.
Besides cooking and eating, I council with my family, pray, dance, entertain guests, blog, sometimes yell, help with homework…all at this spot. I’m a mother and this is my spot. I love that I have a spot. My life’s most important work is being lived and recorded in this very spot.
My spot is getting a new outfit to cushion my tired feet. I’ve been searching for a new area rug for 2 years that would be perfect for my spot. It’s due to arrive any day but I’m so darn excited I had to share. I’ll share pics of my new area rug as soon as it gets here…but until then here’s a sneak peak.
Do you have a “spot”?
