New Challenge

Hey guys.  Remember my post about the house below:

New to my blog???  Well, to fill you in quick, this WAS our dream house.  1970'S ranch....totally not updated, and so cool down to the tile in the bathrooms.  Totally everything we wanted in a future home for our family.  Yep.  Perfect.  Too perfect.  And unfortunately, we didn't sell ours quick enough (you can insert lots of foul language here).  And it is now in the contract stages with a stranger.  My house.  The one I saw growing old in.  I've been a a total funk for a week, that's when we found out.  I was ready to take ours off the market and stay put.  We have an adorable home, but my sweet husband said, "there are other houses out there Jenni." 

So today I sucked it up and started looking for a new dream house.  And unfortunately, the one above has set a high bar.  I know, many of you are thinking what a weird choice for a dream home.  Maybe it was too much of the Brady's in my childhood, but I love a 70's house.  Puffy heart.   Well, suppose I should head now,  Georgia MLS here I come!!  I found one today that had mirrors everywhere in the main bedroom.  It gave me a very good chuckle anyways.  hehehe.....

Aw. I'm sorry. That's a stinker. It can only mean that another house is waiting out there and even better of a fit. You just don't know it yet! *wink*wink*

I'm sure another home will come up ... don't give up.

We moved into what I thought was our dream house but it has turned out to be a big disappointment. We are planning to move in another year - we just have to wait for our oldest child to finish her last year of high school. The wait is killing me as we have been looking at homes in the small area that we want to move to. We have seen so many beautiful homes come and go ... but I have figured out that there is always going to be another house that we could easily make our home.

What a bummer. I hope an even dreamier home is in your near future.

First, I love your art work and your blog! In fact I am signed up to take your two classes at Virginia Beach's Art and Soul Retreat! So excited. Graham is adorable. I have had cats around for I don't know how long and can't resist falling in love with any of them. I am sure there is a more perfect house just waiting out there for you.
