My Humble Abode


I was inspired to resume blogging- after several weeks off- by the Tour of Homes that Boomama is hosting. Fun!! I've always been a little nosey as to how other women decorate. What a great way to see real family homes in their lived-in state. We call ours the "Cabin in the Woods"(it's not really in the woods- There is a big grocery store just yards a way. But the big, old oaks help to keep it feeling much more secluded than it actually is.)

My favorite view when I turn down our street- the park at the end of the road. We spend lots of time there.

A tiny corner of our green backyard (and my two oldest kiddos.) We back up to a covered pavillion and tennis courts.
My bedroom. My favorite room in the house. Also where I blog- the pc is at the other end of the room where we collect our clutter.

And the front of my home. This home came at the perfect time for our family. It was an answer to many prayers. It's small, it's very 70's, but we love it nonetheless.
Thanks for stopping by!! Come back tomorow to read all about my trip to England, and see the pics of my wonderful vacation.

Catch me if you can-

I am envious of all the green. We live in an apartment building surrounded by concrete and asphalt. Great place!
