We are now in our new home -- a colonial with a wrap-around porch on 2.5 acres that backs up to a 100-acre state park. This is heaven for us. Although we are still unpacking and I literally got my internet connection up and running five minutes ago--I wanted to take a moment to show you the new place.
What is it about the new house that I love the most?
Is it the backyard where we will have campfire cookouts, go fishing in the stream, play Frisbee, go sledding, pitch a tent in the summer for James, or explore the state park?
Is it the porch where I envision my family rocking away and drinking ice tea on Summer Sunday afternoons? The porch on which I will hang baskets and baskets of flowers? The porch that I will decorate with Evergreen swags for Christmas?
Is it this enormous window in the kitchen through which I will watch woodsy sunrises and sunsets, deer grazing, Woodpeckers visiting my feeders, or the snow falling?
I can't tell you for sure what is my favorite part of this new place. All I know at this moment is that this is where my little family lives, and so for right now, the best thing about it is that it is HOME.
