My Alpine Home
We have lived in our new home in Alpine, Utah for three years now. My current goal is to make a larger more open home (which works great with our extended family) have a bit of cottage charm and seem more cozy. I hope you will follow along and give me encouragement as well as advice as I embark upon this challenge.

Front Porch Welcome
Come sit with me upon my porch
We’ll share a glance or two.
You never know what one might see;
Just know, that I would love to sit with you!
I love my vintage glider and chairs I purchased at the Star Mill Antiques. They were real rusty, so I had them sand blasted and powder coated.
I’ll keep the light on!
Here are a few things that have happened in my little cul-de-sac in the past year and a half.
1. Frequently we see deer just walking ever so nonchalantly up the road.
2. Twice a car has pulled in here because the couple was having an argument. I kept my fingers crossed that I didn’t have to call the police. Luckily, both times they resolved it. At least they had enough sense to pull off of the road.
3. Probably the most exciting thing is that one morning I kept seeing more and more policeman dressed in SWAT attire gather in my circle. When I went out to inquire whether or not this was a training op. the head guy informed me, “No mam, it’s the real deal.”
This soon became one of my favorite things to say. That and his 2nd quote. “It’s just the way we roll.” He said that when he informed me that they were going to be bringing in all kinds of big equipment.
I found out that there was an incident going on in a neighborhood close by. Our circle just happen to be a good place to gather.
Usually, my front porch is a very calm and relaxing place.
Every hour the town clock will chime.
But one never knows.
So please come by, whether quiet or noisy,
sitting with you would be sublime!
