HORRIBLE carpet; black appliances that don’t match the style of the house; a fireplace that doesn’t work. Those are the things I dislike about my new house.
What I love about my new house?
But the number one thing we LOVE—LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE—about our new house? Perhaps you know me well enough to know it comes with a story.
A few months back, Matthew and I paid a visit to my sister Wendy. During an evening walk around her neighborhood, we noticed a couple of houses set back from the sidewalk. The first one we noticed had a huge open field in front of it.
Then we noticed the one to the left of it, a cute little white house, surrounded on three sides by open lots. “How’d you like to live there,” we said, elbowing each other.
I only realized when I walked up to it for the viewing that this is that house.
No shared walls.
Signing the lease today.
