Picture challenge: day 3

Today is "the view from your front door" day in the My Life in Pictures challenge.

Here's my view:
We live in an old area here in town called the Country Club. Our 1922 home sits on a brick street near a library, a park and small grocery store. We love our neighborhood!! Peek out my door and you'll see part of our big front porch and a glimpse at the cool house across the street. I also really like the mailbox right up on our porch (look closely...it's small to the left side of the picture attached to a column). Our mailman still walks door to door and he'll even cross the street out of order to hand me the mail if Declan and I out during the day. Though we'll probably constantly have new issues popping up with an old house, we'll never live in anything newer than the 20s or 30s. :) Thanks for checking out my view.

What a lovely pic, & how fun to have the dogs there looking out on life!

How nice to be able to settle in a nice neighborhood.

That's a cool way to photograph the view from your door, with the dogs standing there. Obviously they are ready to take on the neighborhood!

Love the dogs and I'm sure I would love your house! I would also love to have a front door like that where my doggies and kiddos could look out!

Love the picture of the dogs. My "outside my front door" is a place where my dog sits too. :)

That is one thing I have realized since owning both an old (from the 30's) and a new house. They all require work! The old ones make you deal with updates, bad windows, small rooms, and wall cracks. The new ones get nail pops, have poor lawns, rocky soil from being newly built... Work, Work, Work.
