Front porch Fridays …. errr, Monday

So a long time ago I promised you a new theme called Front Porch Fridays. Silly beginning blogger that I was, I didn’t realize how quickly these themes fall by the wayside.

Lo and behold, today I was finally syncing all of my iPhone pics and realized that I had taken a number of photos of beautiful houses around St. Joe on my walks with my husband and pups.

Forgive the quality, ogle the architectural details …

(Also, sadly, none of these are in *our* neighborhood)

Love and longing on Lover’s Lane

Long time readers of my blog might remember my post that featured my favorite house in all of St. Joe. Driving to the farmer’s market the other day, I literally gasped as I drove past my favorite house and discovered: It’s for sale.

Visions of selling our little bitty house and bidding on this house started dancing through my head until I looked it up online and saw the price. For readers not from this area who don’t have an idea for pricing, our (albeit much smaller house) cost just a fraction of this price. But. It’s. So. Beautiful.

So if any multimillionaires happen to be reading this, and feel sorry for a girl in love with a house, I am accepting donations and will gladly cook some yummy local food every Sunday for you in return. 🙂

Front Porch Fridays

A new feature on this blog will be ‘Front Porch Fridays,’ a sampling of homes from throughout parts of St. Joe. (Or other places if we’re on the road … oooh, exciting.)

Today, we played creepy by driving down two of St. Joe’s most beautiful streets – Lovers Lane and Ashland Avenue. Matt drove as slowly as he could without annoying the other drivers, and I took photos out the window. Luckily, no cops were called.

Here are just a few of the architectural gems from this part of town:

I love this house that used to be a church - although it seems like too much pressure to live in a church.


This beautiful home is for sale!

My favorite house on Lovers Lane. Usually has beautiful huge wreaths on it too - must have caught them between a change out. 🙂
