There’s just something so magical about black and white photographs isn’t there? When you take the color away all that’s left is the emotion and the subjects. I love that.
Summer is in full force here. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
lots of gardening! Pots for the porches, vegetables in the garden and flowers in the yard.
Enjoying all of the flowers that are in season, some from the yard, some not.
Taking Buckley for walks and vet check ups. Buckley is in obedience class right now and is doing really well.
And lots of trips to the beaches.
We went out to my parents’ house in western Massachusetts for memorial day. It’s so beautiful. I loved growing up there.
The view on evening dog walks.
Not far from my parents home is NMH, a private school that was founded in the 1800′s. The campus has been closed for several years now while they’re looking for a buyer (BYU Massachusetts??) but it’s still open for the public to walk around. It’s our favorite place to go on walks. One of my favorite buildings is this church.
When I was in elementary school my mom worked at Deerfield Academy and my siblings attended the Bement and Eaglebrook schools close by. We always went to the Memorial Day program there. The school is beautiful and OLD and enchanting.
Home sweet home.
Here is our living room. Again, a photo from the listing when we were looking at it.
Here it is today.
We gave all the walls a fresh coat of white paint, again, I don’t recommend Behr. We used that and it took 4 coats to get the light green covered. Not ok. We painted over the old red brick fireplace with white. We’re not really planning on using our fireplace since Christopher has asthma and I don’t enjoy the smell of fires (I know, I’m the only weirdo in the world) so we’re going to fill it with wood or make a screen. That’s why I wasn’t too careful with my paint…oops.I’m keeping a neutral color palette in the living room since it’s attached to the kitchen/dining and I don’t want it to feel to cramped.
It’s going to be a nice place for reading…or iphone-ing.
