Stretching Out

Now that we have three Moodys living here, we decided it was time to buy a new couch so Silas could have enough room to stretch out and relax. Finally, he can kick back! Come on, you have to admit that Silas looks a bit cramped on our old couch. (Yes, Silas is in this picture. Bonus points if you can spot him.)Our sectional was delivered this past Thursday, and we are in heaven. We put it in the same corner where the old couch used to be. The room is transformed! There’s so much I like about this sectional–its extra seating, its arrangement, its fabric that doesn’t show every hand print, its chaise, its clean & simple lines.  But one thing I’m absolutely loving is that it doesn’t have a slipcover! No more adjusting the couch before company comes, or at the end of the day, or in the morning, or after sitting on the couch, or after anyone so much as glances in the couch’s direction.  I have so much extra time on my hands now!

I’m thankful for our old couch, given to us by a  friend from Indiana. It has served us well for almost five years. We’ve now moved it to our front room that’s largely empty. But, let me tell you, I am so over slipcovers! Hello new sectional!

Now for some paint, curtains, end tables, an ottoman, new lamps, pictures hung on the wall…..all in due time. For now, the sectional is more than enough happiness. 🙂

  1. It will seem like only a few short years and he WILL be stretched out and hanging all over that sofa; long, gangly arms and legs….but for now …..he is so tiny and adorable!!! I Love the sectional – looks like it a perfect fit for the room. Thanks for sharing the photos – we love watching your precious family grow.

  2. I try to soak in all these fleeting moments, but I already forget how small he was when we first brought him home.
