Hi sweet readers. I hope you are having a wonderful summer! It's flying by isn't it? My daughter Lily came home from camp on Sunday, which means I have both my kids home finally! While they were away, I spent several days out of town enjoying great weather, friends and lots of relaxation. All of our scheduled summer plans are behind us now, so other than spontaneous get-aways, we have the remaining month of summer before school starts to take it day by day. I did deliver on my goal to finish decorating Lily's room before she got home! I want to wait for the last two items to arrive before I show it to you. But, it turned out really well and most importantly, she loved it!! Have a great weekend!

This week we began work on the area outside the lower level of the house. There are french doors that open to a deck that steps down to what will be a flagstone patio with a fire pit.  The one I really like is more of a fire bowl – kind of modern and made from cast concrete. I have to place the order tomorrow, so in 3 weeks the entire project will be complete. S'more time!!!

Here's what it looks like now:




The railing around the porch is almost finished too.
