HELLO, AND WELCOME TO OUR HOME

I decided to take some curb-side photos of our home. I spent the better part of July 4th planting the flowers in the pots, spraying off and scrubbing our front porch and making it a place I wanted to hang out. It paid off; I've spent more time out on the porch reading, chatting with friends and hanging with Nate. For our West facing porch, 8:30 pm {see: fabulous sunsets} or any time in the morning are the best porching hours.




































On a side note: Nate and I saw this fabulously crazy clip of a circa 1980 Brenda Dixon {that's the old Jill Abbott from Y&R if you're a fan} and now we can't help but mimic her when we welcome someone into our home. Thanks Talk Soup!

Your house is so picture perfect, and your neighborhood looks very charming - someday we'll get out there to visit. Also, thanks for the laugh, that video was great! (I used to be addicted to Y&R)

Aww, I love your house. We're actually moving to Daybreak next month. I love the "porchy" feeling there!
