Home Sweet Homes?

I go from my home in Fayetteville to having several places to call home. My youngest daughter and husband are purchasing a one room prebuilt cabin. It will be set up next to their home for me. It will be my own little home to decorate and live in. My middle daughter and husband are asking me what plans I like so they can build me a mother in law cottage on their property. I can decorate and live there. My oldest daughter already has a mother in law house but she and her hubby are redoing the roof and some remodeling. Its there for me anytime I want to go there (Tennessee) Its nice knowing I have 3 homes to stay in and not worry about disrupting their households. I can be near each one yet be in my own space. I have been looking at cabin photos online today. Dreaming about decor and placement of furniture. Its nice to have something to dream about. Not sure what the future holds for me but am blessed to have home sweet homes near my wonderful daughters and families.
Yesterday I went out to lunch with middle daughter, son in law and granddaughter. Tonight I went out to dinner with oldest daughter and family, and middle daughter and family. It was lots of fun and laughter. Youngest daughter is at beach with family while I puppy sit. The puppy is so spoiled I think I am in trouble when they get back. LOL
Have a blessed weekend!

How wonderful Peggy. That's the cutest little cabin I've seen. Don't you love looking at the different styles and imagining how to decorate etc. How blessed you are to have a special place at the home of all three children.

I'm so grateful that you have loving daughters (and sons in law). It's obvious that you're a wonderful mom to them. To lean on somebody is a great thing, isn't it?

I LOVE that cabin!! I think everyone needs one of these to escape to!
You are truly blessed Peggy to have such great kids but they wouldn't be so great and love you so much if you hadn't done right by them in the first place!!

If you do visit in Ten. please let me know and I will do everything I can to come see you :)

The cabin is wonderful ! I love those little things and it's probably not a lot bigger than the Burrow :)

Just found you thru Mind of a Mom. Where are you in the mountains of NC? We're in Jefferson, near Boone and Joanna!

The cabin is adorable!!! I'm eager to learn more about it. We have a rental cabin ( and have toyed at times with the idea of getting another one. It would help to have money, but it (usually) doesn't cost to dream.

Will have bookmark your blog to read more as soon as I have a chance!
