Home Update

Happy Friday! It’s been a busy week around here since moving in on Monday, but it’s starting to feel more like home. I snapped some pictures of the outside if you want to take a peek.

Home Update

I purchased both of my rugs from Wayfair here and here.

Home UpdateWe have a screened in back porch, and we’ve already eaten every meal outside. My round placemats are from Pier 1, and the striped one is from Pier 1 also but is no longer available.

Home UpdateHome UpdateWe have a pool, and our grandson is thrilled! He’s been enjoying it.

Home UpdateWe live in a subdivision with 5 acre lots, so the views are beautiful. I love Kentucky this time of year when everything is blooming.

Home UpdateMy Dad always gets me ferns for Mother’s Day, and he dropped them off yesterday to put on my front porch.

Home UpdateThat’s it for now. We still have a lot of unpacking to do, but it’s all good!

  1. Cyndi, It is so pretty and peaceful. Can you tell me where you got the urns for the ferns? Happy Mother’s Day!

  2. Beautiful, Cyndi! I just commented to Traci that I like the idea of layering rugs at the front door. A screened porch is one of my favorite things!! I wish you a wonderful weekend, while remembering that your Father in Law is in failing health.

  19. Wow…that’s about all I can say/type…this post…and my lack of being around social media much in the last year is a true testament to YOUR faith and my lack of! I had the worst thoughts about what was going on in your life…I just won’t even take the time to list them bc it actually turned out so much differently than I could ever imagine and I’m so happy for you. Life is such a roller coaster for me right now and some days I just can’t see a glimmer of light for hope…accept then I see this and this made me really happy to see. Thanks for sharing what you do with us…it makes you so REAL!

  31. Thank you Cyndi! You are such an inspiration in all you share! Happy Mother’s Day to you and all the other wonderful women who follow your blog and website.

  32. After seeing your picture, I knew I would have to go to the Wayfair website soon. I just bought both of those rugs for my front porch! I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your new home as you decorate the inside.
    Praying for your FIL.

  33. Prayers for your father-in-law. The front porch looks amazing! Do you mind sharing what sizes the rugs are? There are several choices and I want the same look that you have!

  34. Prayers for your father-in-law. I LOVE the front porch. Would you share the sizes of the rugs? I want the same look!

  35. Love, love, love your home…especially the double front doors. I’m ordering the rugs and hoping for the same look. How did you hang your magnolia wreaths…I don’t see a wreath hanger. My doors are 8 feet tall, and my wreath hanger places the wreaths a bit too high.
