Simple Things

Happy Summer friends!  We have such messes in our house right now.  I didn't think you'd believe me so I thought I'd give you a tour...

My sweet little mud room looks like this constantly with Scott doing so many house projects.


Cherries in a blue strainer just because red and light blue are my kitchen colors.


Planting... still


Carpet Removing... see that big bag of yuck?  Would you believe that I dust and sweep around it.  Scott laughs at me telling me to just wait until all the mess is gone!

Getting all of those staples out is a lot of work!


The backyard at dusk is my favorite time of day. I'm looking out the girls bathroom window where I give them a bath each night.


Big trees and pretty sunsets make me smile


Real life photos, not staged... will always have a hose in them this time of year and another flat of annuals waiting...


My regular summer decorations are not up this year because of all of the projects... but in a few weeks when the dust has settled. But I must have at least one banner.


But everything is coming along so pretty now.  The flowers this year are so pretty!

And my arbor is such a delight to see from the kitchen window!

Cold and winter seem like a lifetime away. We are so enjoying (even through the working) this glorious time of year!
