Hand-painted, large-scale, neutral canvas art. Mixed and matched vases with common flowers. Natural light coming in through the window, even though it's cloudy. A super-spicy cinnamon clove candle burning in the kitchen. Ninners cooing and squeaking as he goes in and out of a rodent slumber. The sound of tapping in the rain gutter. A stack of old wood by the fireplace and a pile of books by the couch. This is my happy place. This is our home.
