Summer Begins At Home...

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer...

I love wind chimes. I like to hang them on the deck, of course we live in a wind tunnel...so my poor wind chimes take a beating.

Summertime is much more laid back...peace and serenity is sitting on the front porch on a quiet summer evening.

My husband put our new flag up yesterday... Looking at the crisp red,white, and blue flapping in the breeze made me so happy.

This is where you will find me in the evenings. My favorite spot. I thought the red pillow just made the sitting area "pop".

Yesterday, my son pulled out a birthday present from a couple of years ago. Now we have a big yard (since we moved) and he practiced shooting off his rocket last night.

"America, America, God shed His grace on thee."

I got these windsocks on sale at Wmart. I thought they looked festive, but they also remind me of the beach. Perfect for summer.


What makes your house feel like home? Do you have a favorite spot?


  1. The flag looks beautiful! We need to put ours up on the pole. Woohoo for summer starting!

  2. aw! these pictures make me happy. cute home!

  3. My favorite spot is sitting sideways on the couch with my back against a throw pillow propped against the arm of the couch, Allie at my feet, a blanket covering as much as possible and a bed pillow across my lap with Luke perched across that while I read a book. Love.
