a long wait and now we own a little cottage. we did a final walk through today and i was struck by how much work it needs, mostly cosmetic. also that it is more beautiful than i remember when we last saw it. a pink cherry tree was in full bloom in the yard. several ominous cracks ran up the wall near the fireplace. the wood floors need work. the kitchen needs to be updated without ruining it’s vintage charm.
i am shamelessly in love with the house and the idea of this being our new nest. i think my plan is to work a little less so i have more time to spend at home.
