That House

Every neighborhood has one, right? You know, “that house” where the paint is chipping, and the morning glory is overtaking the grass and the tree has been dead for two years and still, it’s just sitting there mocking you every time you walk by?

Well, I am here to admit that in my neighborhood, I own “that house.” So this weekend we decided to do something about it. I walked into my husband’s office at about 11:30 and said, “What would you say if I said I wanted to paint the door blue?” His answer? “Which door, like, the front door?” I’m pretty sure my grin said it all.

Feels Like Home

Tonight just feels like home. You know that feeling?

Nice dinner with the family as the sun was setting, cleaning up the dishes while I listen to the girls and their daddy playing during bath time.

Fall is here. The air is cooler.

Fall means slowing down. Spending more time with family.

Canning.

Settling in for winter.

Fall is warm dinners. Holidays just around the corner.

More time with family.

Summer just seems so busy. So rushed. Running until late at night. (It’s only natural, with the sun up longer.)
