IMNH: Foyer

Currently, we have a small 4'x 2' piece of linoleum that serves as our foyer. You are almost immediately greeted by the stair case and our living room. It's right there when you walk in our door. At one point, it's nice because it looks like a grand entrance because our ceilings are vaulted and things but in the same breath, you walk right into a room.

I want something like this...



... to be what my guests are greeted by. I want it to sort allow them to settle in before they are greeted by another room.

I want people to be able to take off their shoes, in something like this...



... I want them to be able to hang up their coat and then be welcomed by the rest of our house. I don't want them to just see it all in the first glance.

Just another something that I would love in my next home. It's just something that continues to annoy me about our current house. Don't get me wrong, I love our house, we've made it ours and we are going to stick it out there for a while longer. It's got some great features and we are lucky to be where we are, however, there are just some things that are lacking!

Here are some more options that I'm considering too...






On a similar note: My realtor friend has a listing for this house that is for sale. Not only does it have a laundry room with lockers for shoes, jackets and other misc. things but it has a grand entry way/foyer and a side load garage. She also said some very pleasing information that would allow for us to have our house purchased by the builder so that we wouldn't have that burden on our back. We (my husband and I) talked about it and we just aren't in the position to make this move yet. It's in a great area and it already is solving some of my needs for my next home, however it's a huge financial move and we just have to wait a bit longer to do this. Maybe it will still be around when we are looking for real.

Until then... wait for the other things I hope to gain in my next house.

You seem like you have a vision of exactly what you want. You guys should look into designing your own home and then finding a custom builder. That way, you won't wish room A were a little more this or that. That is what we did and our house is just what we wanted. ;)

I like all of your pictures. We have a foyer but it's not that big. I might have to add a "grand foyer" to my list for our next house. My poor list keeps getting bigger and bigger. :) Alyson

Yep, that's our house. That is our kitchen with the clock on the wall. It's not anywhere near those pics above, but it's ours. ;)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
