"We should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only...sorting the laundry." ~ EB White

"After enlightenment, the laundry." ~Zen proverb

Now don't laugh, but I'm really grateful for my laundry room! We've lived in our current home for about 10 years, but prior to that every house that I've lived in has had the washer & dryer located in the basement. In this house the laundry room is on the main level and I love it. It's nice and bright...we painted it yellow and there is a window that lets the sun shine in. If you open the cabinet above the dryer you'll find one of my favorite things about the room...a laundry chute! It makes life a whole lot easier. Across from the washer and dryer is a wall of cabinets and a sink that I use when making flower arrangements.
I don't know about you, but it seems like we do laundry just about every day of the week....and my least favorite part is matching up the socks! Whenever the dirty clothes start to pile up or there is another load in the dryer to fold I just tell myself that this is the evidence of a life well lived...a life filled with 2 teenagers and a husband that go to school and work and play sports.


  1. I love your laundry room! Love those lovely checked curtains! Have a lovely merry happy mother's day and love to you!

  2. I love the sunny yellow and the window. And a laundry chute? Awesome! Our laundry room in the house before the one we're in now, had the laundry room on the 2nd floor and that was even better; so close to the bedrooms where everything had to be put away.
