Reason #972 I love The Good House: someone just knocked on our door to very politely ask if they could use our swing for a photo shoot. I’m pretty sure our swing is going to hit the big time. I’ll keep you posted on where to send fan mail.
There was a swing hanging from this particular branch when we bought the house, and we’ve since had to replace it with the current version, which Fred carved all four of our names into during reconstruction. Whenever I see someone surreptitiously looking around before hopping on it for a moment, I go out and encourage them… I love to see random toddlers giggling on our swing, families using it for portraits and even the occasional teenage boy trying to look cool and as though his heart isn’t about to burst with happiness as he pumps his feet high into the air toward the treetops.
Around here, it has to be almost Wordless Wednesday, because I can’t really live without words. I’m using these posts to share a few of the small but meaningful things around our home – the fond memories, tattered remnants and found objects that make me smile.
