frontporchongreen. Happy Sunday afternoon IG Folks! Back to home and garden posts after m

Happy Sunday afternoon IG Folks! Back to home and garden posts after my trip to Juarez last week. So grateful to continue to have the opportunity and privilege to make these trips each year. And...as always...coming home with gratitude, humbleness, and some guilt, for the life and home I have. Came home to a crisp, beautiful fall day. Running, outdoor/indoor fall refreshes going on today (the squirrels took a lot of liberties with the pansies and the pumpkins during my absence...🙄)....and laundry...😊 Have a good one! #lovefall #musthaveflowers #vintagepottingshed #mums #pansies #heirloompumpkins #blueskiesfordays #vintage #farmhouse #cottage #cozy #loveyourhome #home #frontporchongreen

frontporchongreen. Hey IG Folks! Happy Saturday! No yard or home decor post today. Today

Hey IG Folks! Happy Saturday! No yard or home decor post today. Today I am headed to Juarez, MX. This is a view I have seen many times in all the years I have taken this trip. This is the view of the lights of Juarez from the El Paso side of the border. Tomorrow we will cross the border to build two homes for two families in Juarez. A friend who is also on the trip said it very well... “I’m going to Mexico to build a house for a family living on an abandoned garbage dump. We don’t preach or teach we just love our neighbors.” Each time I have taken this trip I have folks tell me what a great person I am to do this...NO..I am not a great person. I don’t go, or post pictures, to get praise and accolades. I go not to be a great person, but to make myself a better person. I always wonder if I will be enough for these very sweet families for whom we build. I am a strong believer in stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying to walk the walk of another...if only for a short time or in a small way. This is how we come to understand others, and our differences....and understanding and kindness are so very, very needed right now. No, I am not a great person, but I want to be a better person...understanding others different than me is a place to start. Have a good #juarez2019 #bethechange #kindnesswins #walkthewalkofanother #makeKINDNESSloud #warmersaferdrier

Happy Monday IG Folks! A fall holiday from school means no subbing today. An early morning run was awesome, and now a day of Granny time with my sweet granddaughter. The weekend was spent bringing touches of fall to our yard. Still a work in progress...but getting there. Pumpkin placement of my “numerous” pumpkins (I may have overbought...😜🙄) and a couple more mums still coming....and then the inside...cause it is almost October! Have a good one! #lovefall #heirloompumpkins #mums #pansies #musthaveflowers #farmhouse #vintage #cottage #countryinthecity #chippywhite #fleamarketfinds #fleamarketstyle #loveyourhome #cozy #home #frontporchongreen

frontporchongreen. Happy Wednesday IG Folks!  Full time subbing+grading+planning+coaching

Happy Wednesday IG Folks! Full time subbing+grading+planning+coaching +football season=lots of life happening and not a lot of time for playing and styling...😜...hence these pictures! Anyone else have a pile of treasures in the garage waiting to be taken in the house to be used and styled?...Meet a part of mine...😊. Monday evening was spent pulling the summer flowers. This weekend the plans include planting, pumpkin placement outside and cleaning and fall styling (yay!) inside. The very poor picture (it does have a very cool top) of my newest chippy green cupboard does not do it justice. (Another great find from Tina @thefeatherednest1!) Before we can get it in the house I need to sell a couple of other cupboards...Also on my list of “to dos”...🤣😜😊...Have a good one! #fleamarketfinds #fleamarketstyle #farmhouse #cottagestyle #vintage #heirloompumpkins #chippywhite #chippy #cupboards #lovefall #footballfamily #treasures #thankgoodnessforgarages #castironvintagesink #hydrangeas #homeyoulove #cozy #frontporchongreen #home

Happy Saturday IG Folks! A run, a trip to the pumpkin patch (and they even have goats!) and two football games...high school and college...a perfect fall day! Planting of the pansies, mums etc and styling of the pumpkins won’t happen today due to aforementioned schedule of events...but something to which I can look forward for sure!!

frontporchongreen. Happy Saturday IG Folks! What a beautiful end of summer/early fall day

Happy Saturday IG Folks! What a beautiful end of summer/early fall day in Central Illinois! Blue skies, sun and cool temps made for a great morning run. Now it is off to football this afternoon. Mr. Pope and I had to use the divide and conquer approach today since my son’s high school game and the University of Illinois games overlap today. Mr. Pope is off to use our season tickets and cheer on the Illini. I am headed about an hour away to cheer on the Chargers. Subbing a maternity leave is like being back to full time teaching so not much getting done at home or in the yard yet for fall. Thought I would share some last views of our backyard before fall arrives in the form of pansies, mums, and pumpkins.

When we visited the memorial last December it was a humbling, sobering experience. We did not have the opportunity to go inside, but spent time standing looking at all the names and the reflecting pools. It is an experience all should have. There were many,many folks doing the same thing we were, but there were almost no sounds except occasional quiet voices of those commenting on where they had been on 9/11. The whole scene was one of great awe and even greater respect. Go if you ever have the opportunity...you will not regret...and never forget that the Americans who lost their lives that day in the Towers, on the planes, in the Pentagon, acting as first responders, and all others were a diverse group from all cultures and backgrounds...all the faces that make America.... #neverforget #9/11

Happy Monday/Labor Day IG Folks! Friday Night Lights, daily runs, Granny time (❤️), yard work, house cleaning, a visit with Mom, plus a barn sale for good measure...makes for a busy 3 day weekend! Hope you are enjoying yours! Anywho...a repost...of sorts...many of my favorites...leather bound books, breadboards, vintage iron shoe forms, flowers from our yard, and a stack of Ironstone...🖤 Have a good one! (As a side note thoughts for all dealing with Dorian. My mom was born/raised in FL. Many happy childhood memories of our almost every summer trip to see my grandpa there.) #busynessoflife #farmhousedecor #cottagestyle #vintage #fleamarketfinds #fleamarketstyle #breadboards #vinyageironstone #vintageshoeforms #vintageleatherbooks #blackeyedsusans #sunflowers #hydrangeas #rosehips #musthaveflowers #countryinthecity #homeyoulove #cozy #home #frontporchongreen
