This’s and Thats

Hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day. We sure did. Had a BBQ here…had to put up the pop up canopy to get some shade in the nasty heat! Do you have one of those? About $99 from Walmart, but we use it all the time. Easy to put up and take down. Use it for shade, rain protection, and when we go to the beach. Facetimed with my youngest, and I’m still not sure my parents knew what was going on with that. ¬†Anyway the party started at 1pm…the stragglers left about 6:30pm. Fabulous. Thanks to my oldest for staying and helping us take everything down and put things away. You are my favorite.

And, weirdly…I took not one photo. Not. One. So not like me.

A few updates on construction on our new place. Not much happened the last few weeks. We did get yet more cement poured. Here is our stamped concrete front porch. Isn’t it pretty? I love how it looks like old weathered boards. Will fit in with my farm house/seaside cottage feel that I’m going for.

So worth it. I got this:

Anyway, if you want to follow along on some of the inspiration I’m getting for our Columbia house, feel free to follow my COMO House board on Pinterest. We have lots of decisions left to make. I’m sure I”ll be asking for opinions, because, you know, I’m like that.

Can’t wait to see your new spot! (Home in late July/early August)

Oh, Annie, I hope you can come by and see it. It’s just a bit further down Richland Road. Past where Rolling Hills is coming into Richland.

Darn! I was hoping for a photo of the pop up canopy so I could see the size, etc. Sounds like a great idea. Love your stamped concrete, though. It’s amazing!
