the tan chair

tuesdays unwrapped at cats

Not long after we moved into our house in 1998, we bought a "chair and a half" for our family room.  It has affectionately been called "the tan chair" ever since.  It is one of my favorite places in our home.  I read there.  I watch TV perched sideways in the tan chair.  I have curled up for a nap in it's arms.  But by far the best part of the tan chair is that there is room for more than one if you get cozy.  It is the perfect place to read with a child (even an almost-as-big-as-you child).  Hubby and I sit together there comfortably close.  It's Bubba's favorite place to snuggle with me.

We took this picture this weekend at Pickle's birthday celebration.  It's the tan chair holding my cute sister Kerry, her baby bump, me, Bubba, and Patch the pup.  My three year old nephew was also sitting with us moments before the picture was taken.  Now that's togetherness!


That is what my tan chair represents to me most of all--togetherness.

In the spirit of celebrating the small, everyday gifts with emily at chatting at the sky, I am celebrating cozy togetherness in the tan chair.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Love your chair. Nothing like piling up in a chair with whoever will fit and reading a book.

I had to take a double take...and realized that the "bump" in the picture is Kerry's knee, not Maisie! If that's the babe, Kerr is carrying really low!! Ha! Your tan chair certainly had gotten tons of use over the years...lots of loving, snuggling, relaxing. But I still claim the rocker as mine!

I'm in the market for an oversized chair. They're just terrific.

What fun to pile in for some love. :)
