My Happy Place
Happiness means pleasure; contentment; joy. I think most people have a happy place where they feel these feelings or they have fond memories from their past. I have a place that brings me joy, contentment, relaxation, and peace…this place is our sunroom.
Our sunroom is a beautiful 5-sided screened room. It looks like a gazebo that is attached to our house. It is our favorite place to relax in the Spring and Summer. What makes our sunroom particularly nice is that it is bug-free and shaded. My husband and I sit in there almost daily when the weather permits. We love the sounds of the birds and we enjoy watching the hummingbirds.
Our dogs love the sunroom too, and it’s common to find them sunbathing in there on a nice day. I love that I can open the sliding door and they can venture out there unsupervised yet safe!
We’ve been blessed by our sunroom for about 10 years. It is the thing we’d miss the most if we move. We are grateful for a beautiful house, in a beautiful sub, with a lovely setting. Just wish I could share it with all of you.
So tell me, do you have a happy place?
I do, but it’s nothing like this. It’s a spot in our living room. It just feels relaxing and comfortable. One day I’ll have more of an open space, a deck maybe.
That looks so awesome! When we lived in Illinois, we had a similar spot (my family’s house) where there was like a window w/ a cushioned seating area and some storage space – I used to love to read there. In my apt. currently, it would probably be on my couch, I do a lot of reading, writing, watching TV, and eating dinner there!
That looks fabulous! We’re planning to redo our deck in the next few years. I’ll have to show my husband the picture of yours 😉 Our house is set in a very happy place – at the end of the street with a pond behind us.
Sounds wonderful!!! What city?
My happy places are my pool deck and front room. Your room is gorgeous and peaceful.
My happy place is entirely our home, where I have my wife and kids with me.
Love your sunroom! Hope I can set up something like this in the near future.
Wow! Amazing home you have. Would love to live at such peaceful place!
We are blessed.
