Phoneagraphy: Weekly Photo Challenge

This weeks photo challenge asked us to use our phone camera and the mobile version to create the post. I did as asked but now edit the original at the desktop.
My neighborhood was receiving a blanket of snow so I decided to stay indoors.

On what I hope to be the final snowy night of this winter we enjoyed the warmth and glow of a fire.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Comfort

IMG_1895

This weeks photo challenge caused me to pause to ponder what my picture of comfort looked like. This seating area is part of a room that I call my sanctuary. The room was created shortly after my husband of six years and I married. At the time we both owned homes. It was most practical for me to sell mine and move into his. I quickly discovered that I needed a place to call my own. At the time this room housed boxes and items awaiting a dump run so I took the time to clean it out. During a trip to a local store for other purposes I discovered the seating, it would be perfect! I brought it home. The room was decorated with the few pieces that I kept from my home and items that I truly loved. I have spent many quiet hours in the space; reading, praying and listening to beautiful music. For me this space is a picture of comfort.

Thanks for an authentic challenge.
