As seen on:

When we built our home, a number of people said, ‘don’t waste the space on a formal living room, you’ll never use it!’
Welllllll, we actually do, and I’m glad we have it. It’s a nice place to go and ‘get away’. I love the little settee, it’s great to curl up on a read (not that that happens very often). Sometimes Guapito and I sit there and talk or read or play.

Speaking of Guapito… he had his own idea for a party. After all of the entertaining we have been doing the past few weeks, he felt like having his own party.

After he ‘rearranged’ the formal living room, he decided to move things into his room for a different ‘look’.

He even decided he wanted ‘party favors’.

I love the fact that he is having fun in the ‘formal living room’ and is enjoying the things some would deem ‘off limits’!!!

    I don’t know what I would do without a formal living room! We have had one in all our homes (except the apartment at seminary!) In New England, our circa 1880 home had a parlor in which many a wedding was held. We have used our living room for monopoly or clue marathons, for formal teas, for in-door “forts” when it was too rainy, hot or cold for outdoor camping, for private chats, counseling and prayer and as a place to escape the bustle of a busy family life. Our children grew up with antiques, family heirlooms and treasures. They have learned to care for and use them, all to welcome guests and serve God. Isn’t that what a home is all about

    1. Thank you so much Timberly for the GREAT comment!!! So well said! Thank you.
