Now that we’ve finally settled into our house (after a week of unpacking), I thought I’d share some pictures of our little nook. The space is small, close, and simple but we absolutely love it. When we were looking for apartments here in Chicago, we had a few requirements: a washer & dryer, small space, and a nice shower. It sounds easy enough but that washer and dryer was hard to get! After only a few apartments we found this place. The perfect place to make our new home.
It might seem strange to you to want a small space, but from someone that once inhabited a 4 bedroom house, just trust me when I say that we don’t need it. We like being able to see each other all the time. Sleep together, eat together, get ready in the morning together. We like to be together and this tiny space, our new little nook, only ensures us of just that. I have a favorite song about little spaces. The song itself is not that great, but the chorus reminds me of Big A and how close we are.
“But you know, love grows best in little houses
With fewer walls to separate
Where you eat and sleep so close together
You can’t help but communicate
Oh, and if we had more room between us, think of all we’d miss
Love grows best, in houses just like this”
