"the richness, the comfort of this apartment in an
unfashionable neighborhood. it was in an old building,
an apartment lovely as a park, like a beautiful volume
found among the stacks in a second-hand bookstore."
james salter, light years
today i am wishing i were snuggled up in one of
these cozy, haphazardly beautiful nooks featured
nick and i often refer to our apartment as a "cove" because it
is one straight shot from living room, to kitchen, to bedroom and
is basically a studio with doors that can be pulled across to provide privacy
and warmth. despite the impossibly tiny layout, we manage to fit all of our
important furniture, a ton of plants, and a kitty cat quite comfortably.
we love our little nook, and the quote above, from one of my favorite books,
is on our refridgerator as a reminder that sometimes good things
really do come in small packages.
