I bought this desk for J about a year ago thinking she would sit at it in the evening and do her homework(she was at school then). I thought wrong. J is very social and has never sat at the desk in her room to do anything-she wants to be where the action is. So, today I moved her desk into my room so I could have a place where I could read, write and reflect while looking out at the back yard. I love it! Here are some of my nature books along with my newly created orange sunburst beeswax candle(I got the idea from Mom in Madison).
