I know I may not be for every one and that’s A-👌🏻: but those of you who have stuck with me through my journey #thankyou
On one hand I’m begging that I don’t want to be doing this right now, but on the other we are busting out of the seams of our current home and we need a bigger home. After fighting on the lot over floor plans etc for the 100th time we go for a drive while the two babies fall asleep. We drive around the area. I yell pull over after seeing an open house sign. I hop out and run around the home and backyard. With hearts in my eyes I come back to the car and tell my husband “I found our house”! He was like you’re kidding?! I told him “I am not”! He runs through the home and comes back to the car where I was sitting with the still sleeping children. He asks me “what do you like about it”? He tells me I am joking. I repeat “I am not”! He asks you like the brown walls?, the black kitchen? the yellow granite?, the travertine tile? I tell him no! I hate all of that! But that’s cosmetic! What I love is the yard, I have visions of my kids playing in the river both in the front and back yard and getting dirty. I love the floor plan. This had been a HUGE problem when building. I love that there were three bedrooms plus a master just on the main floor, as well as an upstairs with bedrooms and a basement we could build out. (see before pics and post here)
So like a great husband he put an offer in that day! We along with two other offers came in and we got it!!!! We sold our lot and slowly we made this house our home. We have brought two children into it, finished our basement and have slowly done some cosmetic changes. It’s been so good to us and my children are having the type of childhood I’ve always wanted for them. (see before post and pics here)
As I look at my finished kitchen today my heart is so happy, not because its “perfect” but because of the journey it took us to get it to where it is today.
And Ill say it again, I love my mornings with Briton and Brooklyn!
The night before St. Patricks day I was tossing and turning not knowing what to do for St. Patricks day for my kids. So I made an emergency Walmart run at midnight. The surprise on my kids and husbands face was totally worth it.
