Sneak Peek: Thanksgiving 2012 at Summerfield

I took the time / remembered to take pictures of my Thanksgiving!  Yay me!  As always, the house looked absolutely gorgeous with silver goblets, tasteful flower arrangements, white linens and my family.  My aunts (and mother) and their help work hard each year to make Thanksgiving at Summerfield so special for my entire family EVERY year.  There were thirty four of us this year, which is a low number compared to years past.  In the past, we usually have close to fifty people for Thanksgiving lunch.  Each year I appreciate this house and this family more and more.  Thankful is an understatement! :)

These are some pictures from my iphone (and a few other people’s iphones), but I also took some pictures on my mom’s super nice camera that I will post as soon as I figure out how to upload the pictures to a computer, etc.  (which could be years from now, but hopefully not).

If you follow me on instagram (@wheelerlewis1) you may have already seen a few of these.

That is me holding my beautiful godson, James, who I just met for the first time!

I had to take a picture of the spanish moss.

James loves his godmother already :)

p.s. Roll Tide!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m headed to Selma, Alabama to spend Thanksgiving in the beautiful Summerfield house with my entire extended family.  I will try to take some pics while I’m there.  Until then, here are some pictures to get us in the Thanksgiving mood…

Pretty Patios

Last week we looked at some awesome porches.  Today, I want to share some pictures that didn’t quite fit that category:  patios.  Some people might say that porches and patios are relatively the same thing, but it didn’t feel right for me to put these pictures in the “porch” category.  Considering the high today in Atlanta is 80 degrees, I think we have a little more time left to enjoy this fabulous outdoor weather before it gets too col.

This first picture takes my breath away every time I look at it.  Those doors. Those windows.  That view.  Be still my heart.

 Sooo nobody told me that I completely misspelled the title of yesterday’s post…  Thanks a lot!  Hopefully that means nobody noticed.  I didn’t notice it until I started writing this one late last night – it said “Herrinbone floors”. Maybe everyone thought it was the redneck way of saying “herringbone”, haha.  Next time please feel free to speak up.  I love comments anyway. :)

Porches

There are only a few more weeks left to sit out on the porch and enjoy this beautiful weather.  So that’s what I’ll be doing with my glass of wine :)  If only my porch looked a little more like one of these…

By the way, can you tell that I love a porch swing?

 

 

 

Absolutely in love with those slipcovers and that ceiling.  Pretty much in love with everything about this picture.  I wonder where this is?  If anyone knows, feel free to speak up.

SR Gambrel — I don’t normally like red so much, but this red and white is simple enough for me.  Not to mention the surround yard looks sooo peaceful.
