Little bits

There is just something about summer nights. I am sitting on my back porch under giant twinkling lights,  smelling the honeysuckle and watching Elton play. I only have two more weeks of this until I start summer school, but I can guarantee there is going to be a lot of homework done from this very spot.

Here's a little bit of what life has been like via instagram.

Hope everyone had a happy holiday.  Mine was spent planting peonies.  I am so unbelievably thankful for the men and women who serve our country and the huge sacrifices they have made. 


  1. I love that first picture! Makes me wish I had a porch to spend summer evenings on.

    1. Thanks Kait! We are definitely going to put ours to use this summer!

  2. I dig the patio lighting.

    I have 5 or 6 strings of cafe lights left over from my wedding a couple years back (err... three years next week!) and I've been itching to hang them out back for ages -- too bad we don't have any electrical outlets outside. The glow they give off is beautiful.

  3. Thinking I should have kept those adorable chairs to myself! Still on the lookout for your porch table!

  4. WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE CHAIRS???? I have some very similar (found them curb-side for free).

    And I'm a local girl too! :)

  5. Jennifer- Happy almost anniversary! Yeah I love how they look at night. They almost remind me of a carnival!

    Denise- You need to come over and see the patio table! I miss you! And yes, I don't know what I would do without your keen eye!

    Danavee- My aunt found them on craigslist for me. 2 for $20, but I believe you got the better deal! :) The vinyl is pretty old so I am going to reupholster them this week.
