Your Front Door!
When was the last time you walked into your house thru the front door?
I have to admit, I usually don’t! Generally, I drive the car into the garage and come inside thru the back, kitchen door.
The other day I went to visit a friend and as I pulled into her driveway the VERY first thing I noticed was her front door….her whole front entry way, in fact! It looked so pretty! And inviting! Before I even rang the doorbell, I felt welcomed into her home. It was such a nice feeling!
I try to keep up with the front of the house….and the message it sends to those that come to the door. But I got to thinking….when was the last time I changed the wreath on the screen door? (I think it was February or March actually.) In fact I noticed when I got home that there is an active birds nest in the wreath! Oh No!
Now I feel I can’t touch it! At least until the eggs hatch!
And I make a point to change the flowers in the planters out front…..but it’s been awhile since I watered them….and changed them up! It’s almost July now, and I still had the pansies out there!
You can bet that I have swept the front stoop, and replaced the pansies with geraniums…and watered them…..and the wreath will be changed as soon as the eggs hatch too! I want you to feel welcome when you come over to our house. Even if the only person that rings the door bell is the UPS man!! 🙂
And that reminds me, I better check the doorbell and make sure that it rings…the batteries wear out way too soon!
Come on by! … Anytime!
