Celebrating Home.....in the mountains.....

~The Living Room~
Between towering pines, Aspen trees, and a stellar view of the Casper mountain range there is a view of captivating sights which surrounds my sweet daughter Kacie's home.  A little over a year ago, she and her husband, Josh, moved there with their twins.  They have rooted deeply into the local traditions of sking, hiking, ice~skating, and the western culture!  I am proud of them for making this brief job change so fun and interesting for their twins and for the rest of us who have had the honor of visiting them. They won't be there too long but long enough to find an appreciation for all that the states of Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, and the Dakota's have to offer. 

The climate and plentiful sunlight which floods their home provides ideal conditions for an outdoor life~style that has allowed them to create their home as a sort of haven for the rest of us who visit.  On my visits there, I have found their home so peaceful and restful.  Every corner of the relaxed home is filled with books, photos, and pieces of furniture that hold sentimental meaning for their family.  Many of the items in their home, such as Kacie's treasured antique dining table are from her family.  They spend a lot of time indoors this time of year, due to the snow and they have created a beautiful and pleasant home. 

Two weeks ago, I was blessed to be there for a few days.  I came home rested and refreshed!  Such a happy place!  Simple, yet elegant!  Such a beautiful Western Home!
