SUMMER LIFE

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.

MY HOME SWEET HOME

We went out to my parents’ house in western Massachusetts for memorial day. It’s so beautiful. I loved growing up there.

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.

We always went to the Memorial Day program there. The school is beautiful and OLD and enchanting.

THE LIVING ROOM RIGHT NOW

Here is our living room. Again, a photo from the listing when we were looking at it.

Here it is today.

livingroom004We 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. livingroom001livingroom008livingroom007We 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.livingroom006I’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. livingroom002livingroom005

It’s going to be a nice place for reading…or iphone-ing.
