Welcome to my home

There are some days when I miss having a yard and lots of room to roam. Days when I long for a vegetable garden or big place where children can run. But today was not one of them. As I sat on the balcony of our detached condo this morning, I realized how blessed I am to be here. Yes, my home is lovely and is, in a sense, my sanctuary. I draw peace from the water. Here are few pics of our home.


The front of our home.


The walk to my front door.



My little flower garden

Our little table and chairs


Our neighborhood.




The view from the balcony.


Across from us.



The river view from our dock. Kevin and I joke that we use to
have a boat without a dock and now we have a dock without a boat.


Across the river from us



Looking down the river
Yes, I am truly blessed.

You are exceedingly blessed, your home is SO lovely! I would love to live there, and have a view of the water. I think a water view is my favorite, even over mountains and other vistas. Thank you so much for sharing, and the opportunity to "know" you just a little more!
Blessings and Hugs!

I love the view of the river. Your home is beautiful. Sometimes we think "the grass is always greener..."; I've learned to be content with my home in the country, with a great view of beautiful sunsets and sunrises.

Pretty and peaceful...great combination!!!! ~ The pictures of the Grands on my blog was taken at the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes by Traverse City. Beautiful Area and not to far from me.

OOOOOO! I am glad for you! There is something so tranquil and wonderful about water. It has been one of our dreams for years to live near water. I agree with my sister, Donna though. It is good when we can be content where we are planted.
