Step #1

The 1st step to our house being fabulous is complete. The front porch. I finally filled my planters yesterday, after sitting empty for a year or so. I think I am going t re-paint my front door again. While it has been fun to have the ONLY red door in the neighborhood-  feel like its messing up the color flow of the house. So I was thinking of a dark grey maybe. What do you think?

I even used used water efficient plants! 
More pictures of the yard to come. We are working on a retaining wall for the back yard this weekend. Well, Mushy is working on it, I have to work the entire weekend. Have I mentioned lately that I love Retail?

What - no invite to work on the retaining wall?! haha. :)
I like your red door... but I'll support your dark gray decision.
If Mushy wants help this weekend, we're coming back from camping in the early afternoon... we could still come over...........

About Me

My photo
I always had aspirations to make it big. Learn French. Move to Paris- for good. Instead, I met my soul mate, and our two lives became one. We decided to make it small, and moved to a little city. The inspiration for this blog came to me, while I was driving on an old country road with the top down and my man at the wheel. As the fields flew by, and the the Wasatch Mountains glowed in the Sunset. I realized that I may never be able to speak French and I will never move to Paris but I had made it big after all. This blog is dedicated to all the little things that make small town living beautiful.
