After years of dreaming and planning and drawing, being displaced from Hurricane Florence. and then finally moving home, I think that 2020 might actually be the year I get something I’ve wanted since we moved: my own home office!

I had the brightest, most beautiful, super fun office at our old house, and I would hole away there and write for hours.

Now, I’m dreaming of the day when I have my own little dedicated space again.

But extra seating for friends (and my boys!) is a must too.
