Welcome to our Home Sweet Home! We got home yesterday from our annual two weeks at the beach and I have been busy unpacking and trying to get back in the swing of things. As much as I love traveling and summer, I also love being home and getting back into a routine. I think experiencing both really helps you appreciate the other. I am so thankful for the time we get to spend at the beach every summer and then it is such a nice thing when we can get to our usual schedule…
Which probably really won’t happen until 2021 at this point, but I digress…
Today I am joining some great bloggers who are sharing their summer homes today as part of the It’s a Colorful Life Summer Home Tour. A big thanks to Jennifer and Jewel for putting it together! So let’s take a look at a few snapshots of our colorful home decorated for summer. Nothing formal just sharing a few touches for summer. This snapshot perfectly captures our home – kids everywhere, chaotic but full of life! So come on in and let’s take a look. (Watch out for the scooter…)
SNAPSHOTS OF SUMMER: THE FRONT PORCH
First stop is always the Front Porch around here. In fact, our front porch has become somewhat of a sidekick to this blog as I do a weekly Front Porch Coffee Talk series where I share tidbits of life and whatever is on my mind as if we were two friends sitting on the porch. And it’s where you can find me most mornings.

SNAPSHOTS OF SUMMER: THE FAMILY ROOM
Come on into the family room! Full of coastal accents for summer and pops of blues and greens. I love collecting shells and driftwood on our beach travels and then finding ways to incorporate them into our home.
