it all began in march. we weren't really looking to purchase a home just yet (although that was certainly one of our longterm future goals), as living in our little studio apartment was working quite well and we were enjoying our sweet cozy space there. but sometimes the universe has another plan in mind and you've got to be ready to follow your path whenever the time presents itself. and so, we did just that.
this house, situated on two beautiful heavily-treed acres, became available on the very road we envisioned and dreamed of living one day! within walking distance from our beloved waldorf school and quite secluded at the very end of the road. very serendipitously, we received a call late one night from the owners saying that they were putting the house on the market the very next day...and that a neighbor (and good friend!) had suggested that we might be interested. we went the next morning to see it and absolutely loved the location and the land, although we felt that quite a few renovations to the house would be in order and wondered if we were ready for such a big commitment. but again, trusting that the universe had undoubtedly led us here...we decided to take the leap and the rest, as they say, is history!
sooo...we've been packing, moving, cleaning, painting, renovating and clearing since then...sometimes at what seemed like a snail's pace (hence my absence here). we still have much to do, but we are settling in nicely and we look at one another often, full of gratitude, and think just how blessed and lucky we are to be here.
