Our very first home was an apartment in northwest San Antonio. Did digital cameras exist back then? They may have, but we did not own one. Our second home was in Edmond, Oklahoma and we loved it. It was our first house. We had amazing next door neighbors, a wonderful church and amazing friends. Digital cameras had been invented during this time, but we still did not own one. I hope to dig up some pictures soon.
The third place we lived together was in Troy, Illinois: right outside of St. Louis. It was one of my favorite houses. Our neighbors there were incredibly warm and friendly.
Looking through my pictures, I can't believe how much my decorating style has changed. We sure loved red!
We finished the basement to add a family room and a guest bedroom. Love the color palette in the guest room.(Minus the red, of course.) Whew! That is a bright green in the family room.
I think in hindsight, Kate's nursery is my favorite. Obviously, that is due to the very soft color palette and the large amounts of vanilla coloring. It was so relaxing to me then as a mom of a newborn and a nearly 3 year old. It still invokes feelings of relaxation in me today.
Claire's room is a very, very close second. She also had a very soft color palette with very light shades of rose and aqua.
Loved our back porch and yard. We ate outside very, very often!
Our house backed up to a farm. We had a lovely view of rows and rows of corn. We loved it there.
