After being on planes and in rental cars for 24 days on my Slightly South of Simple book tour, I am thrilled to be traveling out of Beaufort for the next few days.  And now that it’s nice and warm in North Carolina it’s such a treat to be able to fling the windows open first thing in the morning and enjoy fresh air all day long. But I can’t help but be a little envious of those who are lucky enough to have a charming Dutch door to let the breeze and sunshine in . Here are a few Dutch doors that we thought would look right at home in any house. We hope you enjoy!
