A Little Taste of Home

One thing I miss about New England was the look of the houses. It get's pretty boring out here looking at nothing but stucco and varying shades of beige and browns. I know this is to help with the heat and the stucco is durable. But there is nothing like the look of brick, or siding, and different colors of homes when you drive through neighborhoods back home. And I LOVE homes with lots of windows and porches etc! Which you also don't see often out here, again because of the heat.

The other day I went into a custom home neighborhood and literally thought I had just pulled into a neighborhood back in Massachusetts. Timewarp! The homes actually made me a little homesick and I had to pull out my camera. It was so weird, and I instantly wished I lived in one of these gorgeous homes. But until I do, I know these neighborhoods and these homes are hidden all over the place around here and are my little taste of home whenever I see them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did...


  1. So true. There are some "normal" looking houses here. I'm torn between both looks. I like the southwestern look of an adobe style house and I love old country/brick style houses too. At least we don't have to worry about wind tearing off the shingles or the siding!

  2. well I have had monsoon winds tear off some of my neighbors' roof tiles! LOL

  3. Oh my gosh! Those homes are beautiful. Where was this?
