Dream Vacation ~At Home with Amy & Nick ~~The Complete House Tour ~~~and Just an Old Fashioned Love Story

The absolute best part of being an empty nester, 
is visiting our adult children in their own homes.

We have had the priviledge of doing so in
Lincoln, NE
Fargo, ND
Rochester, MN
Boston, MA
and now, in the UK.

It is joyous to experience the environment that they have created...
not only their style of decor, 
but also the warm, comfortable, safe atmosphere that is their
Home Sweet Home.

The Foyer
While the foyer is the smallest room in the house,
it is one of the most important. It is the introduction to your home...
where guests form a first impression of your style.
And here, everything was perfect!

Their foyer was functional
(complete with basket for keys and sunglasses)
and so very charming.

Across from the foyer, was the half-bath.
Amy had everything so sparkling clean and neat...

"Today i choose Joy"
I love this!

The Guest Room

Nick had to check in at work...
Amy was busy preparing homemade pizza crust dough...
so I got settled into my room for the week.

There were empty drawers in the dresser,
empty hangers in the closet,
and you can see the guest bathroom across the hallway.

It was so welcoming...



Thank you for making me feel at home.

The Living Room
A perfect setting for relaxation...
I've seen this comfy spot over facetime,
and now, I was actually here!

We also caught up on a couple episodes of our favorite shows.

The Dining Room
I enjoyed having dinner here with Amy and Nick.
Homemade Pizza, 
Grilled Chicken, Couscous, Asparagus,
Grilled Salmon, Rice, Broccoli

Good Food...
Great Company.
Thank you!

Also in the dining room, this impressive piece...
A Vintage Wine Rack, 
it is from France and they found it at a local bazaar.

The Kitchen
After dinner, the dishes are drip drying...
Amy and her hubby are a team, preparing dinner
and tackling the clean up together!

The kitchen is my favorite room in a house.
It is a the heart of the home.

We toured so many fabulous places,
however, visiting Amy and Nick in their home 
ranks right up there with my favorites.

Take care,
~Natalie

p.s. Today is my Mom and Dad's Anniversary.
They were married 70 years ago.
Today they celebrate together in heaven.

Well said: the foyer is the introduction to one's home; the kitchen the heart of the home. Functionality, if I may add, is the keyword of any smart home style.
