Do you remember my Social Planner, Tanis? She and her husband Larry retired to Coldspring, Texas and have spent the last year selling their two homes- a lake house and their city home, clearing land, planning a new home, and finally building and moving in to their dream home. They really did find a slice of heaven when they found the 22 acres that they are quickly turning into their family gathering spot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This past weekend they held an open house. Friends and family were invited up to visit and enjoy their world. The Social Planner went all out.

You know it is going to be a place in the country when you have to have signs  because the GPS might not work.

The house was in full fall decorating mode,

I love the front porch.  I wish I could bottle the view,

Texas Wreath

 

The Social Planner’s niece made this awesome wreath.  Love it.

The barn red front door looks perfect.

Beside the front door there is this great fountain.  It is so peaceful and the etched rocks remind the person sitting on the porch why the couple chose this spot.

I love the fall mums.

There was a hay ride, the covered porch was loaded with ice chests, places to sit and eat and things for the kiddos to do.

The Social Planner has three grandkids already and another on the way. She also has a nephew with three kids and when all of them are over the place is hopping. It is great to see a place that is so full of laughter and love.

Out at the back of the property the guys hunt doves, do target practice and just hang out.

The Social Planner got lots of loot at her open house. I am so happy for both of them. They have a beautiful home and open hearts.

The frame above and the chalkboard below are in their awesome laundry room.  The Social Planner found the two windows on the side of the road.  They are as found, except for a couple of coats of poly.   One day the house will be empty enough for me to take pictures of the room.  This weekend it was full of purses, phones charging, dogs, and toys.

Enjoy the photos from their beautiful home and friends who visited for the weekend.  I hope the photos reflect their style, the love their friends feel for them, and family.
