at moms house

to be fair, my dad lives there too. 
but since mom is in charge of all things beautiful and charming, 'at moms house' is a fine title for these pictures i want to share with you!

the last time i was home, the sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, and the peace i felt was almost tangible.
i longed to be a kid again. playing outside until dark, watching the stars until falling asleep under a cozy blanket on the deck.

here is a quick visual tour my parent's outdoor spaces -

these cute little guys flank the steps leading to the front door. love the little knome! (i have a twin. mine is sitting in an indoor plant. if you dont have one, you should.)

love this view.  especially on a hot summer evening when the crickets are singing.

 when the sun goes down, these babies light up.

do you have a favorite summertime spot?

  1. Everything is so pretty! Playing outside until dark as a kid is such a fond summer memory of mine too. I also love to sit outside with a blanket and look up at the stars.
