Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tara @ 4:58 pm

This is what we woke up to on Tuesday morning. About 2 inches seemed to slow down the whole city. I went to Harris Teeter(grocery) around 11am and it was a ghost town. The poor guy working the self scan was also working at customer service because over half of the staff did not show up due to snow. This was definitely the last thing that I expected from my first winter in the southern part of North Carolina. The snow is trying to hang on but the gorgeous sunshine it trying to melt it all. I am sure there will be remnants all week since we are expecting temps in the lower 30’s.




Trying to stay warm in the south,

Built in shelves

You just can’t beat built in shelving. This is across from the french doors that lead to the deck.

home-004This is our view from the deck. The woods are not very deep and there is a really nice neigborhood behind us. I am guessing that once the trees bloom, we won’t be able to see the neighbors at all.

I am really pleased with the way the house has come together. Our two sets of furniture have meshed well to make a lovely home. I can’t wait for you to come see it. You might want to wait until this cold weather breaks, though. That way you can truly enjoy the NC weather.

I will try to get a recipe up soon.

Much love,

Kick back and relax corner

This is really a dining area but, who has a formal dining room anymore? The table fits in the kitchen area so we made this special space to layback and chill. Read a good book or listen to music or take a nap in the sun.

Tell me what you think. I would love to hear your comments!

Master Bedroom

Simple, elegant style. You really can’t tell much from the pictures, but it is very pretty. We haven’t decided what to hang above the bed.




So, who spotted my cherished childhood treasure? Look closely.

Lovin life,

Too cute!

Mia has been working so hard over the last week. This morning she fell asleep while taking her bath.



Don’t tell her that I took this picture. She wouldn’t be amused.
