San Antonio I

July 2, 2010

These photos are taken at my husband’s grandmother’s home. This house to me is the ultimate American home. It is beautiful, warm, and welcoming. It is the house that Grandma has taken care of with love and care. It is the place where the families gather during holidays or when out-of-town family members come back to visit. It is the heart of the family and Grandma is the center of it.

The very first time I stepped into her house was 12 and a half years ago and it felt like an electric shock to see such beautifully decorated house. I have always been interested in interior design, but the day I visited her home was the beginning of my true interest in decorating home. The way she decorated her home was eye-opening to me as a Japanese since it’s so different from what I was used to and being at her place was all learning experiences to me. Her daughter, my mother-in-law and her grand-daughter, my sister-in-law are also very good with decorating their homes. It must run in the family.

Grandma’s back yard is absolutely gorgeous. It provides a place for family to relax and enjoy company. The swimming pool in the back yard makes a beautiful landscape while it entertains people during summer. We had so much fun playing in the pool. While our older daughter is a fish who could stay in the swimming pool all day long, our second daughter is like a little kitty who does not enjoy being in the water so much and would rather snack. So, there she was in the kitchen eating some snack.

I hope you enjoyed viewing some photos of Grandma’s home. There are more to her house, but I didn’t get to it. I was there to be with the family, not to take pictures. It’s hard to balance the two; having conversation and taking photos. I seem to not manage both at the same time.

I do not know when I can update my blog again, but I will try whenever I get the next chance! Till then!
