Come on in!
I hope you can smell the Rosemary when you cross the threshold. I just trimmed the plants that mark the entrance of the path to our neighbor's yard. I wove the trimmings into last years grapevine wreath and added a few flowers from the front beds. It smells wonderful everytime the door opens!
Welcome to BrightHouse!
My husband David and I live here with six very lively and curious young men. Our home became BrightHouse when we had to name our school. We had fun remembering that our friends who helped us paint when we first moved in referred to it as the 'LifeSaver' house and the 'Crayola Box' because of the bright paint colors I chose.
(I rebelled a bit in my twenties after growing up in a very beautiful but very brown home.)
Even though none of those glowing paint colors remain we still love the name BrightHouse. Our home is bright with love, life and ideas. The name is also a reference to Matthew 5; 'let your light so shine before men'. We want our home to be a 'bright' spot in the memories of our sons when they are grown, so BrightHouse is here to stay!
