Front Porch Dressed for Memorial Day

Posted by on May 21, 2014 in front door, front porch | 9 comments

My mama always told me that the older my children got...

the faster life would go.

I didn’t believe her when the girls were 4, 2 and 3 months.

Life didn’t seem fast at all.

I lived my life in little segments…nap time to nap time. 🙂

But now that they are 14, 12 and 9…

…days are flying by.

We rush in and out of this door all day long.

School. Basketball practice. Award nights. Graduation parties. Track meets. Shopping trips. Doctor appointments. Haircuts.

You get the idea.

So for this Memorial Day…

…we are looking forward to a day of nothingness.

And I might even grab a bit of nap time for myself!

Life to the full!

  1. Melissa, Your door looks lovely and your dog is absolutely precious. I hope you all have a relaxing week end!

    Huggs, Nancy

  2. Gotta love your door decoration but you didn’t tell us how you did that. Is that a future post to come? I’m trying to figure out how you put that fencing stuff on there. Really cute and different. I was going to hang out my big flag (end of a pallet with boards added to fill in), but as of tomorrow thru Sunday we’ll have rain. For pete’s sake, would be nice to have one nice Memorial weekend. Fiddle sticks.
    When your kids get older it seems the days and years do fly by. I keep wondering how in heck I got to be this old. And the kids? sheesh, oldest will be 54 in July, oldest boy turned 51 in Dec., youngest son just turned 50 on May 1st and youngest turned 44 last month.
    Enjoy your girls while you can. Even our grand kids are getting old, 24,20,18,17,16,14.
    Your dog looks so cute, she looks like such a sweetheart. Hope you have great relaxing weekend. I might see if we can go for ride down to Montrose to antique. Something to do but most likely end up at home watching Jag. Happy wonderful weekend

  3. I love the door decoration! So soo cute & festive ,but still with style!!!

  4. Very pretty! Your wire ornamentals are gorgeous! What a sweet pup! Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Your porch is perfect for Memorial Day. Hope y’all have a great weekend.

    Yes, time flies…I just said that yesterday to my family.

  6. Your porch does look festive for the weekend. We don’t have human children, LOL, pups but I can imagine that the time does go by in a blink.


  7. Love your door ‘wreath’. Perfect for Memorial Day. We are chilling too. Yes, time flies. The closer they get to college the faster it goes, then poof! finished with college. Yikes. So, hold onto these precious years and enjoy them every chance you get!

  8. Beautiful porch! Adorable golden! What’s his/her name???
    Thanks for sharing. Always enjoy your blogs!

  9. Those flags looks fabulous, Melissa, as does your whole front porch.

    If you have a minute to spare I’d be thrilled if you could share this post at my weekly Say G’Day Saturday linky party. It has just started and this would be a fabulous addition.

    Best wishes for a wonderful long weekend,
    Natasha in Oz
