One of my most favorite parts in our new home is the foyer, aka entryway. We didn’t have one before at the old place.
Having lived in a dormitory for four years during Med. school, before getting married, I never really knew what I was missing.
What foyer are you talking about?
You have to understand, Aji and I lived in my dorm room for about 2 months after getting married in the Philippines, before I went back home to Vancouver. When we moved into my parents’ one bedroom basement suite, we totally thought the space was so much more than what we had in the dorm, so we were just so thankful.
A few months passed and it seemed like the basement unit was getting smaller for the two of us. Accumulated
junk stuff is what happened.
Then we had people over and we realized that the most number of people we can have over is six, that’s including the two of us.
Aside from the fact that we had very little space for guests to leave their shoes in, we also figured out that during the winter months, not having a foyer meant having the door open straight into your living room for about 10-30 minutes depending on how long the conversation went (during goodbyes), right before guests left the house. Can you imagine how cold it got? Brrrrrrrr.
Now If you aren’t feeling the love we have for our new foyer already, here are some photos for you to change your mind!

Have a great weekend everyone!
