Country Home Charming


My entire life my going to my Grandparents' house has always been a destination vacation.  A lot of my friends had just gone down the street to see their family members, but not me. I had to travel North to Minnesota. Going to my Grandparents' house was always a treat and all these years later it still is.
Driving up the little driveway to home that has been in the same spot for 50 years every little detail on the outside is just as I remembered it to be. As soon as the car pulled up in the garage and the cold winter air was shut behind us I stepped out of the car and into the garage. Walking into the house I'm greeted with a view of the church pew that has sat in the entry my whole life.  And the house was just the same. Decorations change with the seasons, but everything else remains the same.

Artwork from the Grandkids

I was obviously destined for artistic greatness at a young age. 

Grandma's Quilts 

Down in the Root Cellar. On the floor four out of five sisters left a handprint and a signature. My mom was the weirdo who left a footprint. 

Where I would sleep whenever I would visit. Also where I would watch Bugs Bunny!

What a good looking family!

I remember trying to stay up all night to see Santa come down the chimney. He must of snuck in when I dozed off a little. 

When it's not so cold the garden is filled with beautiful flowers. 

I love you Grandma and Grandpa!
Thanks for letting me visit for a while and share your cute little home in the country that you built all those years ago!
This home has always been so special to me and I can't wait for my next visit!
