Home is where the heart is

Last night I came across these photos I took last year of my childhood home in Sugar Land, Texas. Yes, Sugar Land is a real city and is just as whimsical as it sounds. It is a place where kids can still go outside and play till dusk and neighbors borrow eggs and sugar. Our family is so blessed to have been surrounded by such wonderful people who have become some of our closest friends. This house holds so many of my fondest memories (especially of my mom), and is something I hope to keep in the family forever.


  1. What a beautiful house. Love the fountain too. I'm so happy you're living the life Dreams are made of. That's what it's all about! :-)
