Featured at Town and Country Living

Hello and Happy Sunday!

I am very excited to have our home featured at Town and Country Living today.  I love reading through Jennifer's tours of homes.  She chooses such warm and inviting homes filled with tons of ideas, so I am incredibly honored to be included.  If you haven't already, definitely tour some of the homes in her Charming Home Series.

 

We are slowly getting back into a routine after vacation and I am already feeling pressure to get everybody ready for back to school...crazy!  All the of the school supplies are stocked in the stores and they are already picked over and crowded.  I thought that usually happened at the end of August?  Heck, when I was a kid we would run out to get the couple of items we needed after school started.  Now, my kids get detailed lists (including brands of scissors and calculators) that cost upwards of $100 plus for each child.  It seems out of hand to me?  Do your kids get detailed lists too?

I am just going to put that all out of my mind for the next few weeks and enjoy our summer.  I hope your summer is going great!

  1. My kids are grown but yes, we always got detailed lists of what to buy for school and it always cost several hundred dollars even when shopping sales! Thanks so much for letting me feature your beautiful home today. I love every square inch of it! :)

    1. Thanks (again) so much the lovely feature of our home, Jennifer! I guess school supplies are just expensive for everyone. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  2. We have a choice for the younger kids, we can choose to purchase a pre-made package of supplies that will be at their desk on the first day of school or we can use the list and get them ourselves. My oldest we do not get a list until 2 weeks before school starts and then everything is gone. I do a little extra shopping just to keep up with the supplies they run out of, paper, pencils and so forth when the supplies first come out. Yes each year it seems to happen earlier and earlier. You can wait because everything is gone. I hate having to shop so early and feel rushed. Have a wonderful summer. Alaina

    1. I agree, Alaina. I hate feeling rushed in July when it still feels like summer just started. I guess I better get it over with and get some shopping done this week. I hope you have a wonderful summer too!
