When we were looking for our "dream home", we had a lot of ideas of what we wanted and where we wanted to live. So, when we looked at our current home, it didn't quite meet all our expectations. But, when we drove off from looking at it the first time, I remember very specifically telling my husband that I could see us living there for a very long time. You know, like, forever. ;)
It was older than we wanted and it needed a LOT of elbow grease. We looked at more homes. But, we came back to this one...and viewed it a second time. When we stepped out on the back patio, we looked at each other, and decided this was it. This was where we were meant to raise our family. So after negotiations, we closed, and it was ours.
Someday, I'll show you all the before and afters. We've poured a lot of time and love into our little space. Lot's more to do, but I'm just sooooo in love with this house.
And those I share it with, even more so. ;)
