My Home - Exterior

I thought I'd share a few shots of the exterior of my home while I'm away. It's not a palace by any means, but we love our little home. Can you believe the door and the shutters used to be Smurf blue when we bought the place? I'm talking bright blue.

It's funny, I've actually been in touch with the previous owners of the home (my neighbor is still very close with them). They had always wanted to paint the door/shutters black but just never got around to it.

I think she was very happy to see her previous home so well loved and taken care of by us the last time she visited.

I know that she and her husband adored the house and I could tell the moment I walked through the front door for the first time. It just had "good energy", you know? It's a happy home and we love it.

Love how your yellow door mat matches the yellow lap shade in the window.

Looks great! Can't go wrong with black... especially if you started with smurf blue! Geeew.
