Drive By


After visiting our good friends for their annual Christmas Eve family gathering, I suggested (instructed) our driver (my husband) to drive through our future neighborhood and enjoy the holiday lights. (Yes, it wasn’t to drive by and enjoy the lights as everyone else does during this time of year.  I freely admit it…my wheels are turning and I am already planning how to deck out the exterior of our house come December 2018!)

Would I love the neighborhood to get on board and follow Sunset Hills in all its glorious color and lights?!  The annual drive through Sunset Hills in my hometown is nothing short of amazing.

Of course, you need an older established neighborhood (Sunset Hills circa 1924) and trees…alas, there are not many trees in our new neighborhood. It wasn’t that long ago that the land was used for farming which explains the lack of trees. So, wherever you are, plant a hardwood: oak, maple, and hickory.

Oh, and I found out some of the trees chopped down on our lot last week are (were) hickory! Hickory! It is definitely one of the most popular woods used these days for flooring. While we both love it, we decided on European Oak. I digress and will share later about floors, paints, stone, plumbing, kitchen…

Merry, merry to one and all!

  1. You could start buying live trees and plant them in your “bearish” yard.🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲
