10 on 10: July 2010

For this month's 10 on 10 (10 photos taken once an hour for 10 hours on the 10th of the month), I decided to do it You're Gonna Miss This style to keep in line with the other posts I've been writing about things around my house that I'm gonna miss when we move in a couple weeks.

So, please join me on a photo spread of some of the details I'm going to miss on Avery Street when we move to our new adventure into wide open space.  There are many more, but here are a few I captured...

Our mailbox.  It was nice just having to open our door to get the mail.  I'll miss that luxury when I'm walking to the end of the driveway in the middle of January through 3 feet of snow to get the mail at our new house.

This tree grows out front and has always intrigued me.  I'm not sure what type it is (I call it the "camo tree") but it's beautiful!  

Our fenced in backyard.  Yes, we're moving to 5 acres (instead of .23) but our backyard now is pretty fabulous, especially for the City!  I love our backyard, the size, the privacy, the memories.  This isn't the best photo of the yard, but it gives you the idea.

The fake security camera my husband installed to ward off hoodlums after we had our first issues with property damage/theft.

Our huge (2.5 car, attached!) garage that is also nearly unheard of in the City.  We watched a lot of thunderstorms from this garage, had actual garage sales, parked two cars, stored various toys, tools, other motor vehicles, and always had somewhere for the kids to play, even on rainy days!  We even had our first dinner in the new house on a card table in this garage and watched a street fight taking place down the road.  Ah, good times.

The afternoon sun coming in our front door/windows always casts such a warm glow on our orange living room.  

Our "veranda".  Ah, so fabulous.  We entertained quite a bit out here, watched the kids play, sipped our morning coffee on warm Spring mornings.  It wasn't much, but it was ours.

The house number and the stone on the front of the house.  Just little details I want to remember.

I loved the sidewalks for the kids to ride on, walk on.  Our new street won't have sidewalks so that will take some getting used to.

This one is sort of random, but I really like this built in cabinet.  It served a lot of purposes over the years (DVDs/videos, trinkets, books, toys) but it adds character to this little area.
