The Heart of My Home

As a member of the Twitter Mom groups I often find out what is happening in the world of blogging. Keeping up to date often has its treasure in your own blog. Annies Home is my place on the web that I call home and where I blog what is on my mind. Twitter Moms has recently alerted us to a contest that is currently going on sponsored by Samsung. The contest is fairly simple Samsung simply wants to know your thoughts on where the heart of the heart of your home is. The prize to be won is a Samsung washer and dryer.

The Heart Of My Home
The room I consider the heart of my home is not the prettiest room of the house, it is not the messiest room of the house either. The room I consider the heart of my home is the kitchen. With six children I believe the kitchen is the heart of the home because it is where we spend most of our time. As you walk in my house you walk into the sitting room but no one ever sits in this room unless it is a formal attire. You walk past this dressed up sitting room and into the room where all the action is the Kitchen. In the kitchen you may find the normal jobs of the kitchen of cooking, baking or eating happening. You may also find an art project being worked on, remote control cars being created, homework being completed, or a simple conversation taking place. It is the room of my house where my granddaughter shared many meals with her grandma, it is the room of my house where conversations between teen and parent has taken place. It is the room of my house where we were asked by our now son in law for our daughters hand in marriage. The kitchen is truly the heart of the home.

What is the heart of your home? I would love to hear. Please leave a comment at the bottom of my post to let me know what room you consider the heart of your home.

I listed this at Hooked on Houses as well. For more things people are hooked on or to share your own visit here


  1. awesome post! You are so right about the kitchen being the heart of the home!

  2. nicely put! i agree, it's the main reason we bought the home we have now-the kitchen/dining area is the largest room-b/c that is where we spend most of our time with the ones we love! love your site btw :)

  3. I love the picture of the little girl with frosting all over her face. She is just too cute!

    So glad you stopped by my blog and took the time to leave a comment. Thanks & I hope you'll stop by again soon.

  4. The heart of my home is probably my bedroom. I have a tv in there and the girls don't have a tv room. So for some reason they have turned my room into their hangout. I guess it started when i was depressed and didn't want to leave my room so they would always come in there to talk to me first thing after school and now they use it for their hangout room all the time. But then again, it may be, because it's usually the cleanest room in the house and they can relax. Melissa

  5. You make a room pretty by filling it with people you love. You can do that 3 times a day in the kitchen.

  6. I would have to say the kitchen in our house too & the living room. We're in there a lot watching tv & hanging out.

  7. It is so great that there is such a special place for you and your family!
