a room of my own ::my little hiding place::

Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful.

William Morris

I love this quote I found on a blog:

"The furniture you own should be a culmination
of all the different people you have been
at different points in your life."

I love that our little spaces tell so much of who we are.
We create stories around us,
for us to enjoy and to remember.

I have lived in so many different houses,
flats, rooms, cities, and countries.
But each one of them has given me the space I need
to contemplate,
to reflect, and to escape.

I'm so grateful for all of the wonderful memories
I've created with special people
in all of these special places.

I just wanted to share a glimpse of my sanctuary in Prague.
Here is where I sneak away from the chaos of the city,
where I hibernate in winter,
where I bake in the afternoon,
where I cultivate my mini Spring garden,
where I read & write & reflect,
where cry & shout & laugh.

This has been my home.



  1. I was so blessed to be able to visit your home. Who knows, maybe I can visit your next one!?

  2. oh hannah! I miss you and your creative, full-of-life, awesome-cooking self! i wish we were still in beautiful Prague sharing laughs and life together. Love Italy and then come to Richmond soon! :)
