My birthday wish came true! We found our new home. It’s artsy, quirky, and in a neighborhood we hadn’t even looked to for housing, but we couldn’t be more thrilled. The way it all came together was really an act of providence or something. Let’s start with what the house has: 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, an open living, kitchen and dining space, a newly renovated kitchen with loads of heart and soul, the perfect backyard for grilling, raised vegetable beds, a fantastic storage shed, fruit trees and other beautiful trees, a driveway to park in, a deep freezer chest, a washer and dryer, and two wonderfully friendly and talented landlords. It doesn’t have a dishwasher. In other places we looked at, that was almost a deal breaker. But it didn’t even seem important in our consideration of this house, because everything else just felt right.

Can you see why we said yes??? Isn’t it marvelous? I didn’t even mention that there is a guest house on the property that was featured in the New York Times last year. Our landlord built it herself! We won’t have access to it, but still, it’s very cool, and adds to the depth of character this unique house has to offer. We are also very excited about moving into a new neighborhood to explore, and have several friends that live just a short drive away. A new adventure for our little family and we can’t wait till August 1st. I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the move and decorating ideas for the house in the meantime, and plenty of photos after we move in!
