1. ClassyRose - March 11, 2011

You look like you’re right at home. 🙂

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

As soon as I got here, I knew that I was finally “home.”

2. barb19 - March 11, 2011

You have found your own little piece of paradise Nancy! Wouldn’t mind living there myself, looks like my kinda place!

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

I waited 1/2 a century to get here . . . and it was definitely worth the wait. 😎

3. CMSmith - March 11, 2011

Is that where you really live? I’m jealous.

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

This photo was taken at the Beachhouse on Anna Maria Island, about 3 miles from our villa.

But it captures how I feel living on the Gulf Coast of Florida, bare feet in white sand.

4. Carol Ann Hoel - March 11, 2011

Beautiful home and I LOVE the palm trees! I miss them so much. When we moved to Florida, I got so excited the first time I saw them. Blessings…

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

Everytime I see a palm tree, I pinch myself to make sure that I’m really here.

5. eof737 - March 11, 2011

Is that you? You are so beautiful and your smile glows… Beautiful Nancy!

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

Thank you, Elizabeth! That’s me. 😀

6. marina - March 11, 2011

Now, that’s a beautiful place to call home! 🙂
I am jealous just because you are barefoot in the sand……

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

Thanks, marina. It is the most beautiful place I’ve ever lived. Barefoot in the sand is what makes it feel like home.

7. yoriyuliandra - March 11, 2011

Home –> place where you can smile no matter what life could bring
That must be your home then… :mrgreen:

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

Thanks, yori. Loved your photo of the dragonfly at home at your home.

The other day I found some sand dollars that my wife and I found 15 years ago. They were wrapped in a napkin from the Holiday Inn Express in Orange Beach.

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

Cool. Are they now on display?

I have two pewter plates filled with sand and decorated with shells, including small starfish and sanddollars. Very peaceful to see these gifts from the sea.

I love sand dollars but have yet to find a whole one on the beach here.

9. Cindy - March 11, 2011

Your happiness is evident, lovely smile, Nancy 😀

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

Thanks. I felt the same way looking at your recent photo in the Pesto apron!

Happiness radiates without from within. 😀

10. Tammy McLeod - March 11, 2011

It’s a great photo Nancy! I know why you love it there.

nrhatch - March 11, 2011

To some extent, I always “bloom where I’m planted.” The difference here? I’m putting down ROOTS! 😀

11. Tilly Bud - March 12, 2011

What a lovely photo!

nrhatch - March 12, 2011

Thanks, Tilly. Being on the beach always makes me smile. 😎

That might have been the night we crashed the wedding on the beach. Or maybe just the night we danced in the moonlight.

12. flyinggma - March 12, 2011

Lovely home for sure Nancy. We have two more inches of snow this morning and strong cold winds. Yesterday I walked the 3.5 miles to work just to be outside even though it was cold. It is home whether I like the current weather or not. Jeannne

nrhatch - March 12, 2011

Thanks, Jeanne.

And, wow! That’s impressive. Walking 3.5 miles to work is a great way to stay in shape but I’m never inspired to walk that far on cold days. I’m a “fair weather” walker. 😀

Your blogs have been quiet this week. I’m looking forward to more of your photography.

13. 1959duke - March 12, 2011

I put them in a glass picture frame and there are some whole ones in there.

nrhatch - March 12, 2011

Wonderful idea, Duke.

One of the most beautiful set of shadow boxes I’ve ever seen were a pair of driftwood frames used to display a single sanddollar and a lone starfish . . . on backing the color of the sea.

14. Booksphotographsandartwork - March 12, 2011

Sigh. White sand on the feet. Sigh again.

nrhatch - March 12, 2011

You need to take your grandson on a trip to the beach this summer ~ somewhere you can BOTH wiggle your toes in the sand. 😎

15. Sandra Bell Kirchman - March 12, 2011

You look radiant and peaceful in that photo, Nancy. You look like you are very well acquainted with your “home within” and it is reflected in your “home without.”

However, the next thing I noticed was bare feet and I thought, “Ssss-nakes!!” lol

nrhatch - March 12, 2011

You won’t find me walking barefoot through the Everglades, but snakes don’t like the beach . . . I hope. LOL

16. CMSmith - March 13, 2011

Thanks for the ping-back.

nrhatch - March 13, 2011

Loved your post and your welcoming photo.

We’ve left so many homes (10 so far), that it gets to be rather routine. People with children, who put down roots, have a tougher time moving from the “nest.”

17. Tokeloshe - March 14, 2011

Beautiful !

nrhatch - March 14, 2011

Thank you.

18. Sandra Bell Kirchman - March 15, 2011

I noticed your ping backs on this one. What a nice idea.

nrhatch - March 15, 2011

Thanks, Sandra.

When lots of people are following the same theme, I like to capture those that I come across because half the fun is seeing what others have done.

19. nrhatch - March 15, 2011

Thanks, Rose!
