Life at the River

Hello hello! We've arrived at our new home base for the next three months - the river house! I've been slowly easing my way into life here since we arrived on Sunday afternoon. We've gone from city to country/water and I love the change of pace. This house is a really special place to us and we're thrilled to be able to call it home for a little while. I'm popping in to share a few random thoughts on life here so far as I get back into the groove of blogging after the craziness of the move :)...

Want to get a visual on where we're hangin'? Here are a couple of photos I snapped for the mini tour of the common areas of the house back in the winter:




{There are lots more photos in the posts about the living room, den and dining room if you'd like to see more! I'm hoping to share more photos of the house this summer.}

I Instagrammed this photo on Sunday in front of the house just after we arrived. Can you tell we're excited to be here?

In the few short days we've been here, I've already found that being in pretty much in the middle of nowehere on the water (we're about 1.5 hours away from anything larger than a small town) has been a really nice change of pace from the big city life we're used to living. Even though I'm working during the day, my evenings have been super relaxing and I've spent a good amount of time staring at the water, reading and hanging with my husband. It's almost like a retreat. Since there's really nowhere to go, I've been forced to just be. And I have no complaints about that.

Even Jackson's gotten in on the water-staring-action (or non-action, really)...

One book I've been reading and LOVING is The Nester's book: The Nesting Place (affiliate link). If I didn't have to do things like work or cook dinner, I wouldn't put this book down. The tagline, it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful, sums up the gist of the book. She urges you to create a home you love - no matter where you are - and that worrying it won't be perfect shouldn't prevent you from getting started on doing that.


There's good stuff in there, y'all.

Last thing for today is this photo of the sunset from a couple of nights ago. I don't know what it is about this place, but we get the most gorgeous sunsets. The house faces west, so all we have to do is sit on the porch and watch the sun go down to get quite the show!

I'm so grateful to be able to soak up some of God's beautiful creation while we're here.

I'll be back tomorrow with some of my favorite links from the past week or so, and then next week I hope to have a project or two to share. I'd also LOVE your input on a project I'm brainstorming about for the summer. Y'all have to tell me if I'm crazy for taking something like this on...more details to come!

Oh, and P.S. today is Charlie's and my 4th wedding anniversary! Yay! Here's to many more :).

  5. Jordan 4 Black Cat Release, Mi 10 Youth Edition aka Mi 10 Lite is all set to be unveiled in China on April 27 and it is expected to run the latest version of its MIUI UI. A few leaks in the past have tipped that the device will support 5G connectivity in China. Xiaomi did launch a Mi 10 Lite in the European markets recently but this Mi 10 Youth Edition slated for the Chinese market is expected to be different.
