My husband and I went for a drive past our childhood home in Tomhannock, NY this fall. The reason I call it "Our Childhood Home" is because this home belonged to my husband's parents and then my parents bought it from them. It was Eddie's childhood home and then it was mine. The three windows on the right of the house were bedroom windows. It was Eddie's bedroom from 1st until 6th grade. When they moved, it became my bedroom. I had it for 3 years while we lived there. For me it was 5th -7th grade. It makes a fun story to tell people that my husband and I shared a bedroom when we were kids and then explain what I mean. My mother and his mother were friends and neighbors in high school. They remained friends after high school and Eddie and I met when I was born one year after he was. We were childhood playmates. When his parents decided to move to Florida, my parents bought their home. The rest of the story of how we wound up married is for another time!

We have not had a car payment in 11 years. It was time to get a car that was dependable. When Eddie had to tow me home from work one day in August, we decided we needed to just admit we needed to get a new car. We bought it one week before we took it on vacation to North Carolina. We put over 3000 miles on it in less than a month. I guess we broke it in well! I love it and it is more than worth the payment!
When my husband and I were on vacation this past summer, we stopped at antique shops. This was an idea we saw in a shop and I knew I wanted to try it. We used one of our many window frames and some of the collected bottles we have. It looks so cute with flowers in it.
I made this adorable halloween decoration out of a mop when I was in college. My mom was making cute mop dolls and had a pattern for this one and I loved it. It has been one of my favorite Halloween decorations since then.
