Home Sweet Home

We are back from our Summer vacation. Rather than tackle the daunting task of doing a giant post of everything we did, I'm doing random short ones that highlight my favs. We had a great time, but it's so nice to be back home. For starters, I love my house. I forgot just how much I love it until I was away for 6 weeks. I guess what they say is true - absence makes the heart grow fonder. (Works for husbandly affections as well!) And to top it off, Craig made some great home improvements while we were away. (He was only able to spend the first couple weeks with us and had to come back home to work.) He painted the main bath while we were gone,



did plenty of yard work including revamping the flower beds, planting new shrubs and adding outdoor lighting,

cleaned out the garage,

and shined up his new motorcycle. (That wasn't necessarily on MY list, but lots of work for him nonetheless.)

These lovely flowers have been an especially cheery addition. I SO love having fresh flowers in the house.

It really is nice to be home.

That's great you got to go and visit family for awhile. Tell them I said hi. You're right about loving your home. It's nice to go away and get away, but it's always nice to come home. Thanks for the anniversary wishes. We had a great week in San Diego! :)
