Brunch in the courtyard

We have had flooding this week in our little river town.  I know from experience how devastating it can be to have your home or business flooded.   Our business was flooded several times and it pains me to think of all of the hard work that is involved to get things back to some kind of order.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the flood victims in Nashville as well as here in our state.
On a good note, it’s beautiful here today and I’m going to have brunch and dinner in the courtyard.

Let’s go for a little stroll.

This old screen door was original to the house.  We found it in the basement.  My husband attached it to the end of the Pergola and I LOVE it.

We got the old bricks for the floor from an old distillery that was torn down. 
They make the courtyard look and feel as if it has been here for years.
