Good morning to you all.
It's sunny, a little windy, and fresh here at the lakehouse.
I've been visiting other blogs this morning, and wondering what prompted me to start my own blog.
I remember the very first blog I ever visited. It was Sarah's at A Beach Cottage. I would get home from work and immediately turn on the computer to see what Sarah would be posting that day. She has a real fun personality, and such a way of saying it like it is.
I LOVE her beach style! Sarah has an everyday house that she's made into a "home".
That's what I have...an ordinary house. I could tear out walls, and put on additions. Redo the ceilings, and gut the bathrooms...well, not really, we don't have the finances to do any of that. So, I work with what I have.
There are blogs out there that end up in decor magazines. I felt just a wee bit intimidated for quite a while.
Don't get me wrong...there are gorgeous blogs out there that I visit, just to see what they have done of late.
But if I start to feel intimidated by them, then it's time to back off and appreciate the home I have here at the lake.
I have a simple house, with simple "things" that make me happy. Nothing matches, and there is no main theme throughout the house...except for white, vintage, and lakehousey.
I have been blessed beyond measure by all of you! I love visiting you, love getting encouraging comments, and LOVE, love, love the friendships birthed in this place we call blogland.
Enjoy where you are....simple, elegant, or in between.
