Fourth of July porch decor

Hey there! 

This is our second summer in this house but really the first summer I am decorating. I don't have a lot of front porch decor because we have never had one this big. It is one of the things that I really liked about this house. This is my favorite front porch of all our houses. Last year we bought 2 rockers and a glider bench from Sam's and I just threw some pillows on them and called it a day.

Summer Bedding

Hey there!

I like to change our duvet cover at least every three months. I last changed it back in March which you can see here. It was a nice change from our winter bedding but to be honest you could see the dog hair too easily on it!

The duvet I have on now is the one I bought last year from Pottery Barn. It's still available on their website if you are interested. It's the Veronica Organic Duvet and shams. 

The colors are perfect for this time of year and for our bed. The Mr. and Mrs. pillow covers are some I made years ago and the heart shaped fuzzy pillow is one I picked up on clearance at JC Penney after Valentines day.

Our Grand Canyon Rail Journey with Traveling Homeschoolers

Hey there! Back at the end of April we took a trip via Amtrak with the Traveling Homeschoolers. This was our second rail journey with them and it was just as fun the second time around! We flew to Chicago the day before we were due to board the train. 

We stayed at Homewood Suites by Hilton which is right across the street from Sugar Factory restaurant and behind (shares the building with) Eataly Chicago. 

Me in our room. 

We had a nice dinner with awesome desserts at Sugar Factory. It's a bit pricey but it is Chicago!
