Sunday Nights + Sofas!

Ok, I'm all about keeping it real.  And this is the real us on a Sunday night.  We moved the sofa back down here.  It's been upstairs for 5 months.  I tried living with my two upholstered chairs where you see the sofa.  But, honestly...we are a sofa family.  I must admit I really want a new one; but this works.  Workout equipment is out & about, it looks a mess.  But, it's real life on Sunday night.

Sunday nights are important to us.  Especially when football is on.  And more so when our Cowboys are winning.  My Men are die-hard fans. 

I am grateful this evening.  And, it's just small stuff...but it's REAL stuff.

♥  Our first fire of the season.
 ♥ Our first pot of chili.  And it was really good....a Martha Stewart recipe
 (infused with a touch of cocoa).
♥  Sunday paper strewn everywhere.
♥  Our dogs right by our side.

Fall 2010 has been our most peaceful, love-filled, harmonious in 10+ years.  HEY!!!!  That's why I wanted the sofa back downstairs!!!  We can sit close to one another, cuddle up.
Yup, I'm talking about #2 Son cuddling. 

 My ♥ overflows.

You brought tears to my eyes. Oh you all look so comfy and close. I love the fire going and those two fur babies under the table ( Duke looks so innocent...wonder what he has eaten up lately). This picture is heart warming for sure! You deserve this harmony in your and your faith and undying love are being rewarded . Love you!!!

Dear Vava,
I like eddie's comment, you keep it real. yes u share the good, bad and ugly. but most of all u share the real thing. I could bring my fuzzy boys and snuggle right in with this family yelling at those Cowboys. I am so happy for the well deserved peace this family is experiencing. Think I'll write about u in my gratitude journal tonite. xoxoxo FRANCO

Love this post! Sundays are the best, and this picture is so HOME and COMFORT! I actually am confessing here and now that I let Lynn bring up
the recliner from the basement to the LR, in the interest of all being together in the same room watching football, etc.! Love you!
