Our Home in Pictures

OK! Here we go! Remember this pic from
when I asked if you wanted to see our house?



This is on the other side of the fence...



and what you see as you're driving up our driveway.



If you keep going up the driveway, you'll see our horses in their barn...



...and the chickens in their house!
{which Mr. Realife built from scratch, and I painted!}



The chickens love to follow us around the yard :)



... and lay these!!



The front of our house...



... Mr. Realife is a Landscape Designer, so he did all the work.
{These pix were taken last Fall, so it's 'all grown up' now}



The back of our house!



... a few additions...



Side of our back screened in porch...



The inside!



Our own personal oasis...



...and where I do a lot of blogging.



OK! So... that's the outside :) Stay tuned next week
for a peek through the back sliding glace door...

I just wanted to say that I know I promised the next chapter of My Story -- I'm figuring out some things -- I'm writing a book and don't want to put the entire thing online -- I'm thinking I may do "My Life in Dreams" and only tell you some of the dreams and leave you guessing {aren't I sweet?!} I'm in the midst of writing another one of my dreams {I've had a lot} and it's really difficult to write it out! Yet, I know I'm ready, so I'm pushing through it! I promise I'll post it soon!

My favorite part....the screened porch! I want one!! We built our house 4 years ago and that's the ONLY thing I regret not having. The drive to the house looks pretty awesome too. I would imagine you start relaxing as soon as you turn onto your drive with that beautiful scenery.

Mrs. Newlywed said...

Very pretty.

I love screened porches. My parents' summer home has one, and I have so many good memories of playing board games out there on rainy days or curling up with a good book after a day at the beach.

Your house is beautiful.

You have an absolutely gorgeous house. Super pictures. I love especially the personal "oasis."

Everyone's house should have at least one "oasis" room, a place to relax, unwind and recharge.

PS - I've been such a slacker about getting through my Google Reader. Just now caught up on your posts. I love love love your hair! So fun! And I've starred your 1st chapter to read through when I have more time to get into it. I'm very excited to read it...you seem to have such an amazing journey and I'm excited to get to know more.

Saskia said...

Oh. My. Gosh.

Can I move in too?! Your house is beautiful!! It looks so serene in amongst the trees.

One day I hope I live in a house like that and not a shoe box like now (even though the shoe box is a delightful one!!)

I love the patio furniture! I'm not normally one for wicker, but that dark brown/black color with those green cushions is so cute!
