Come on in I saved you a table by the window with a really nice view!
As a Titus woman I will be serving you today with ideas on a happy home full of all things surrounding a retro style wife and mother.
A retro wife is one who loves to stay at home and take care of the kids, her husband and if you are lucky enough to have made it to the point I have… now grand children on the way! If this sounds like YOU… Welcome Home!
I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.
Today’s Porch Club Topic “What do you Find Romantic about Porches”
Me? Hands down sleeping on the porch!!
Years ago homes in the south were built with a porch on the back and usually all but one side was screened. The side that was not screened had siding and faced the morning.
My sweetheart and I have had many vacations where we have pulled beds out to the porch! I love the style of home like the one that has been in his family for years at the bay with window all along the back of the house. We would open them all. This room becomes a screened in porch room.
When the kids were little our favorite vacation was renting a cabin in Mountain HomeTexas. It was out in the middle of nowhere, and simple house with a large screened porch! On this porch were two double beds and it was used as a good old sleeping porch!
At night you can hear leaves as the breeze climbs through the trees, and occasional hoo of an old owl. Lighting Bugs flicker as they randomly fly in the night, and the cool breeze smells so sweet as it puts you to sleep with the stars as your nightlights. I love to put fresh flowers or lavender in the rooms to catch the breeze. Ah, life is good.
Morning comes and the sun peeks through the trees and smiles a good morning. Birds begin sing a new song and all you need is the smell of coffee and bacon!
Ah yes start the day with Bible study and cup of coffee then
Bacon and Eggs with homemade Biscuits and Gravy
I don't have a sleeping porch, but often on hot summer nights I wish I did. I'd sleep out there quit a bit and soak up all that wonderful goodness of God's glorious creation! Before moving to Louisville I had a hammock on my back porch I was known to have had a sleep out with the cat a few times. For now, I'll just have to settle for sleeping with open windows on our beautiful summer nights.
I can't wait to have a house with a screened in porch! We are moving in the next year I hope we can find a house with one! I would love to pile the grandkids out there and let them build some great memories on beds like these!
