Today, we became homeowners again. This is our new very old house. It was built in 1890 – the same year my dear, departed grandmother, Margaret, was born. I’m thinking this is a good omen.
The house was owned and loved by its former owners for twenty years. They hosted their daughter’s wedding in the back yard a few years ago. Because of this, my girls have nicknamed their new home as “The Father of the Bride House.”
We are just a few doors down from the General Store otherwise known as the “Genny.” The Genny is charming, serving hot coffee daily – and even includes wine in their inventory. I consider this an even better omen. Attached to the Genny is a post office where
we I pick up our mail. Not so sure I’m crazy about this arrangement. Who needs snail-mail anyway!
I will post photos of the inside of the house in the weeks ahead. We will begin some renovation projects in the beginning of the year after the girls
get out of my hair go back to college.
I better get the Mister a nice shovel with a big red bow on it for Christmas.
This is the cute little barn. Picture was taken on a much warmer day.
Hope your day is filled with sunshine!
Not much time left on my giveaway…
