There's No Place Like Home

Here's our little cottage in the woods. Just the right size for Joe and I and all the grandchildren we can gather at any given time.

Joe and his tattoo taking a breather between heavy boxes. TV installed first--we've got our priorities right!

The kitchen-- the heart of the home and the source of all things yummy and cozy.

A playhouse and swing set in the backyard...Aidan's pretty happy about that. This place has got all the essentials.

Thank you Lord for a place to call home.

A beautiful house for beautiful friends. We'll be watching as you make it your own. Envy your opportunity for a proper garden. Some of my favorites peonies, hollyhocks, begonias, fuschias, cosmos, dahlias, SWEET PEAS, and of course roses.
Love you,

It's so pretty! Looks so Southern and I'm proud of you for having those pretty white Crepe Myrtles in your backyard. They are called Natchez. Very pretty kitchen.
