My favorite space is: My living room.
Why? There, we all gather for family meetings, a good chill/relaxation, movie bingeing and snacks. It's there that we engage in horseplay and open gifts at Christmas. We get to stretch out and cuddle. It means so much to me, a single mother, that my children are snuggled on each side of me, even as teenagers. What I love most, though, is that everything comes through the living room first ... whether it's one of us with the groceries; my eldest son, visiting from college; friends coming through to say hello and see how we're doing; or my younger children, returning from school or the gym -- everything and everyone has to come through the living room. I love that it's right next to the kitchen and we can see each other when I'm cooking. Whether one is curled up reading a book or simply gazing out the window, the living room is probably the most popular place in our home.
If I could change anything about this space I would: Give it higher ceilings with a skylight so that when we walk in, we can be reminded to aim high. The space may be limited, but the sky is not!
