Signed, Sealed, Deeded

It may be a surprise. It surprised my husband too.

We didn't choose the new build.

We didn't choose the spacious and comfortable 70's fixer. (It had really good bones.)

The first time we walked into this home...

 We were home.

It may not be the fanciest home, but it was the home that felt like it welcomed us. 

How does drywall and timber rise up to greet your soul?
I don't know. I'm still scratching my head on that one. 
Our kids felt it. I felt it.

Like a faithful four legged friend, this home greeted us with a sense of belonging as soon as we stepped in the door.

And to think that I didn't want to see this home at first. I thought it looked way to small for our family of five.

So, today I am reminded of the doors we sometimes shut ourselves - the ones that would gladly swing open and surprise us if we had the open mind to embrace the unknown.

Home, New Home

Okay, so our home has actually already sold.

I miss it

... but I am excited about our new home.

What did we buy?

Well, we looked at this house.

We also looked at this house.

We looked at this house too.

Which one did we buy?

After going through all the homes, one just felt like home. The kids and I both called it, as soon as we walked in the door.

This is home!

But, I'll leave you guessing until the next post.

Christmas 2010

At the end of last year's school year I agreed to help our area Girl Scouts and I just haven't had the time to blog. Christmas time and a new camera gave me the kick I needed to post these pics. I hope you enjoy them.

Let me take you to... Strawberry Fields Forever

Click play...

and enjoy the music
while I show you what happened to a few strawberry roots in a bag.

We put the roots in the ground last year, early in the summer.
We didn't put much thought into them.
The bag of roots was around $5, if I remember correctly.
I planted them where tomato plants had been. I found out that's not a good thing. I'm crossing my fingers all goes well.

These are the pics I got before I covered them with bird netting.

Okay, now I'll let our pics speak for themselves...
