Home is where the heart is. This statement could not be more true for two homebodies and their sweet baby boy. Brad and I have always been homebodies. We cherish a quiet night at home together with some good food and craft beer. We often binge watch tv shows after a night filled with giggles and playing with W. This is our dream. And we now have our dream home.
Now you may imagine it's a huge, castle like home. Filled with Pottery Barn furniture and designed exquisitely. It's not. It's a fixer upper- out dated, blue vanity and toilet, old roof, ugly wood paneling. But it's perfect. Two blocks from my parents, not even that from my sister. W will attend the schools that I attended as a child. Our home has a big backyard with many, many trees. Serenity.
Our home is our dream home because it's filled with what we cherish the most. Our little family. And we are surrounded by wonderful neighbors on a quiet street within walking distance from our family. Our dream home.
Tomorrow, I'll explain the unusual way we came to find this dream home ( see picture below for a sneak peek!).
Later this week I'll share some before and afters of our many projects to try and make our new house our new home.
