This is Home.

Hubs and I live a pretty simple life.  We are two city mice who long to live in the country, so of course we own a second-story walk up in the 'burbs.  Sometimes it would appear that everything about us is a non-sequitur.

Our accommodations for the time being are humble, but every spring the landscape here turns resplendent.  The trees bordering our apartment appear in full bloom overnight and you can hardly see outside.

It's magical and restorative to the soul.

Coming home on bloom day.  I do love this hallway with its smeary walls and cool, green stairwell.

The window at the end of the corridor.  Sometimes I wish we had held our wedding right here.

Curtains would be a crime with a view like this.  Takes frying up the bacon to a whole new level.

Going outside to stroll and photograph.  Notice the 2nd story windows completely covered in delicious pink petals.  Yup, that's us.


If I had to choose one palette to wear for the rest of my days, this would be it.

The lilac lady along the path the winds around our building.

I have read many a book perched under this canopy.

Happy Spring Loves.

  6. This is beautiful! I wish I could look at that all day! I never get enough of pretty views. Especially living in new york. My view is of someone elses apartment. Its kinda creepy bc I can see inside about 8 different households at night, which means they can see me on my computer right now. Maybe I'll close the shades!
