Well, friends, we are leaving our beloved 1940 colonial in just one week.

So the reality is, 90% of my home is now in boxes…  But that’s not what you came here to see, right?  So today, we’re going to pretend.

Whether you are a first-time visitor with the bHome summer open house or a regular, please know that you are welcome.  We’ve been waiting for you.

Come on in, take off your shoes if you like, and make yourself at home.

Or have coffee in the sun room.

But I think we should swing by our new kitchen, grab a cold drink…

And take it out on the back porch to enjoy the sunshine.

We renovated our back porch last winter, and I want every last chance to enjoy it with you before we move.

Was it a long drive to get here?  Then stay!  Make yourself at home in our attic guest bedroom.

At least, that’s what we would do, if this were still our home and you were coming to visit this summer.  Instead, though, I’ll say…

Come visit us in our new home soon, and have a drink by our new pool…

Once the boxes are unpacked, I’m sure we’ll even have a guest room for you to stay in. 😉
