Welcome to Lemon Lane Cottage


Three years ago we moved into what I hope will be our forever cottage.  Our home was built in 1954, in the middle of orange and lemon groves, in a little housing development called The Storybook Cottages.  The surrounding neighborhood has changed some through the years; there are fewer citrus groves and new houses have been built around us but our little street has remained largely unchanged.  It is still lined with California Ash trees that touch in the center creating the most magical tunnel and the homes have retained their charming storybook lines.  The front yards are filled with mature trees and the backyards have that park like feeling that only years of love can achieve. 

I’ve started this blog to chronicle the loving work we do here as we seek to create a haven for the next generation…our grandchildren.  Our desire is that our home be a safe and nurturing place for them no matter what is going on in their lives and that they may always feel unconditional love and receive unlimited grace.

I’m honored that you’ve chosen to visit us here at Lemon Lane Cottage…
