home at last...


i have always asked myself where i would rather live... in the city or in the country? if i answered truthfully, it would be both. i love the romantic appeal of living on a farm, the benefit of country life and nature. yet, at heart, i am probably a city girl. i like to be able to walk places, and have places to walk to! never did i really think it was possible to actually have both... until i saw a lovely 1870 (or perhaps earlier!) farmhouse right in the heart of atlanta... and fell in love. now, i am happy to announce that i am the proud owner of this lovely house!! this will be the first "real" home for my family, the first we can actually call our own, and i'm really excited to be able to share it with you at last!














i can't wait to share more with you! we are getting ready to move in now... doing some painting and floor work, replacing windows. we have a lot bigger plans down the road, but for now we are really just excited to call it our own.... and finally move in!

happy new year!!

gasp, sigh...that's my idea of a dream house! i absolutely know what you're talking about with the country/city thing. i crave acreage and barns and a farmhouse but i want to be able to walk to the library or to get coffee! what a blessing that you were able to find such a place. that upstairs bedroom...gorgeous! blessings to you, megan
