What is it about a white picket fence that is so undeniably charming?

The promise of the enchanted garden that may be lurking behind?

When I was a little girl, a white picket fence was my only criteria for my first house.

Years later, when my husband and I were buying our first house, I had forgotten all about that wish.

Looking back, it did have a picket fence around the backyard.

But it wasn’t white. So I’m not sure it counts.

New dream? What about a little something just like this right on the water for the weekends.

Or maybe this… 
Incidentally, the orange and blue bikes are the colors of the new playroom, whose furniture is finally being delivered next week. And–little update–the nursery is almost finished! Mom just left, and we were on a nursery mission the past few days of her visit! A couple of paintings framed, a few more UPS boxes on the stairs, and we’ll be ready for the baby with time to spare. Nine weeks and counting! Have a wonderful night, everyone!
