This is the place where I will share my love of gardening, decorating, re-purposing road-side discoveries and thoughts about life.
For as long as I can remember historic homes and quaint little villages have captured my attention. There is something very magical and dreamy about having a beautiful front porch with colorful potted flowers, and a porch swing filled with pillows! I've always dreamed about owning a lovely little cottage, and both my husband and I are drawn to this style. It seems so relaxed and inviting!
Since my dream of a cottage hasn't come true YET, I've embraced my current abode. My husband and I own a little ranch house and we've made it simply delightful. It's the place that we call home. As I make the turn around the curve of my street, I get a glimpse of my two adorable Shih Tzus perched on the couch, anticipating my arrival. As I walk throught the front door, my heart feels happy because I'm home.
What does home mean to you? Home is the place where I feel safe, loved, and connected to my soul. It's where I can completely let down my guard and be truly me. It's the place where I feel accepted just the way I am. It's the canvas where my creativity can shine. It's my safe haven where I can escape from the busy world.
Since our delightful ranch house has a small front porch, we've created a beautiful back porch, and a gorgeous colorful garden that buzzes with bees, humming birds, and butterflies! It's a cozy experience to be on my covered porch during a thunderstorm curled up with a good book, and staying dry. I've always enjoyed sitting on the covered porches of my friends houses and now I have my very own porch.
