Out of Darkness Comes Light

Our son Ben, is in Israel and shot this photo on Monday in Tel Aviv after the horrible news of the three murdered Israeli teenagers.
We join all of Israel, in mourning Eyal, Naftali and Gilad.
May their memories be a blessing to all people of goodwill.
המקום ינחם אותך בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים
May God comfort the families among all the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Curb Appeal

Okay, so we've lived here for over eighteen months and I planned on painting the front door over a year ago. (You can read about it here.) It was one of those things that went on the back burner...until now. It's finally done and it's amazing how a bit of color can transform the curb appeal to a home.
Here's a peak of the door taken last spring...
The storm door was replaced with a full length one that shows more of the wood door.
After much trial and error I finally picked Covington blue. It's a beautiful soft color, somewhere between a green and blue.
I have a pet peeve about storm doors that are not painted the same color as the door. People: do not leave your storm door white! It should be the same color as your door to get the most impact and have a layered, saturated color look.
This iron bird knocker was only $12.00 and adds so much character to the door.
Now the house numbers look really sad next to the freshly painted door so that's next on the to-do list!
