Welcome to our 2021 Summer Home Tour!
This tour is photo heavy! We moved into this house in September 2005. It was a new build in a new neighborhood. Most of the neighbors on our street have lived here since the beginning. This space has developed over time. I am really proud of how much work we put in to this house.
I am excited with how everything came together this year! This house has a great front porch area which is fun to decorate.
We rarely use this room, but for coffee and relaxing on Sunday mornings. A lot of sunlight beams through this room.
One year we hosted about 24 people in this area for Thanksgiving. We moved the dining room table over to the side and put three long tables in the center. It was glorious to see everyone smiling and eating and enjoying the holiday.
Wayne and I remodeled the fireplace. It had this art deco kinda vibe when we moved in. Wayne built the entertainment center into this niche.
My favorite room in the house! We have had many get togethers in this kitchen! So many memories made.
So many meals cooked. So many cookies baked!
Primary Bedroom and Bathroom
Loft / Office
I love this space. It once was a teen room with a sofa and TV. When Hannah left home I turned it into my office. It is so bright and cheerful. As you can tell I love color!
Guest Bedrooms and Bathrooms
On the side of the Breakfast Room is a wall of cabinets that I use for pantry space.
I loved having so much space to store everything.
Cutest little laundry room!
This backyard is a labor of love. I designed it and bought each plant and flower and bush from the clearance section of Lowe’s and Home Depot. I wanted to just plant trees and flowers organically with no pattern or style.
It was so nice to sit outside and just enjoy the weather.
In January 2021, our daughter was rear-ended in her car by a drunk driver on a Sunday afternoon while stopped a stoplight. Living in California and being 6 hours from her was terrifying. She survived the accident, but suffered whiplash, a concussion and severe back injuries causing her to be in severe pain during her recovery.
My husband, Wayne, was diagnosed with Muscular Peripheral Neuropathy. After a series of falls from ladders and losing grip in his hands, we had him evaluated.
In March 2021, we decided to move to Arizona and start fresh. I will share more about why we sold this house and moved to a farmhouse in rural Arizona!
Thanks for coming along for the tour! We will miss this house, but excited for our new adventure!
In case you missed them….
