Honey, We're Home!

It's been so long that I'm not sure if I remember
how to blog,
but we're home now,
in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida!

R.H. bought the obligatory citrus tree, a lemon,
and I chose a houseplant that would have
looked weird in a TN valley farmhouse
but suits this Florida house.

I've put familiar things around.

And made a few appointments with new doctors.

We've taken time to enjoy the backyard view.

And the view from our front porch.

Now the sun is setting and we're tuckered out.

Honey, I'm so glad we're home!

Missed you all so much and hope to catch up with you soon! 


  1. What gorgeous views...inside and outside! I'm so glad you're getting settled in. I've been wondering what you've been up to, so I am delighted that you posted and gave us all a peek at your lovely new home. :-)

    Have a very happy Mother's Day weekend!

  2. How exciting, Dewena! A fresh, new start! I love your views, and the citrus tree sounds like perfection. Congrats on settling in.

  3. Welcome back! Your new home looks beautiful. I'm looking forward to reading about your adventures in your new home.

  4. Oh! So happy you are back, Dewena, and I am thrilled for you in your lovely new home! Love your views so much--so relaxing. You are blessed! ... Debra

  5. I was just wondering yesterday when we might hear from you again. Your plot seems full of the goodness of light. Are there any 'gators in the pond?

  6. So glad to hear from you again! Your new home has beautiful views. I hope you'll be sharing more photos of your new place with us, once you get settled and you're not so tired from the move.

  7. Glad your home with a fresh start and lovely sun settings.

  8. the offer still stands.

    and i just recently learned... gators can climb fences!
    oh my!

  9. Dewena, I think your wonderful views are going to make settling in the new much easier. I love how pretty it is there. Take your time unpacking and finding places for everything. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  10. What beautiful views you have! Your new home looks lovely. And so wonderful you can still visit your mountain house.
    Congratulations Dewena, and hope to see more posts when you're a little more rested up. xo Deborah

  11. Such pretty window views. Your new house is lovely and I look forward to seeing more of it later. I'm glad you are getting settled. Imagine having fresh lemons right off the tree. I'll be down for lemonade...I wish.

  12. It looks like a beautiful place to live, Deweena!
    And you are already making it Home Sweet Home, I see.
    Happy Mother's Day-Kim

  13. What beautiful views! Looking forward to seeing more of your new home and gardens. Enjoy settling in.

    Your photo's look so lovely, the views are just great.

    Take care and enjoy settling in ...

    All the best Jan

  15. Welcome back! You've been missed. Your home looks fabulous, and frankly not what I expected to see in Florida. I suppose that area gets a little 'greener'?!

    Now that I've gotten that out of the way, please excuse me while I get my muscle men to take care of Tammy. No way she's gettin' in on my spot ;).

  16. Oh, Dewena, what a beautiful place to call home! And you already have it looking so cozy! It's good to have you back, can't wait to hear more about your new place.

  17. Your new home looks so lovely!! I look forward to seeing more! Welcome home - there's no place like it!!

  18. There's no place like home! It was so good to see your post pop up and to know you're settled in your new home. Looking forward to more posts from your new southern home.

  19. Hello Friend,
    I am so excited for you. I am looking forward to learning more about Florida from you. It is fun to learn about new places.
    Happy Mother's Day,

  20. Welcome back to blogland, Dewena. Your new home looks lovely. It always takes awhile to settle in, but having your own things around you helps. The pillow is so very charming!

  21. So glad to hear you're home now, Dewena. Florida.... that must be so different from where you lived before. Look at the view from your front porch, is that a pond? And your back yard looks green and groomed. Flamingos! Oh, those are Jess' favorite birds.

    I hope you had a very nice Mother's Day, Dewena, and I bet it's good to be home.

    love, ~Sheri

  22. Oh Dewena, it's all so cozy and wonderful and I'm thrilled for you! Such pretty views and too, I can't wait to hear about your new adventures there! Blessings, Debra

  23. I'm so excited for you, Dewena. A fresh start!

  24. Dewena,
    So happy to see that you are settled and back here with us. You've certainly got some beautiful views....can't wait to hear more about it.

  25. WOOO HOOO!! so glad to finally see this post! Congratulations on your beautiful new home Dewena! Its so at that pretty back yard! I just know y'all are going to love it there and I cant wait to hear of all your new adventures and all about your new town!

  26. Gorgeous views, Dewena. It looks like you've chosen a beautiful place to live. Looking forward to seeing more of the home and grounds. Congratulations. ~ Nancy

  27. Wow, what views! Welcome home, Dewena! Looking forward to hearing more about your new home, and the area you live in!

  28. Thank you for the Birthday wishes, Dewena. I went to the Zoo today. Needed to see some silly animals. :) I saw real Flamingos there. They are the most unusual and graceful birds. They fascinate me always.


  29. I would say having citrus tree(s!) is THE reason to live there. I am such a citrus fan.
