When we put our home in GA up for sale it took less than a week to sell. So, we were a bit pressed for time to find a house. We had to get our youngest registered for school. We knew we wanted a smaller house with a pool and it had to have room for a boat. So, that narrowed things down. We ended up with this house after seeing it once before. I knew it would need a lot of lightening up since it had all of this stained wood. Nothing was painted. They had just put in all stainless steel appliances and granite but did not do anything to the cabinets. More paint is needed. So, while I love my appliances, I have no pictures of the kitchen. Not until I do some painting. I do however have a pretty nice view of the pool from my couch.
Which Henry enjoys as well.
Flowers and shells always make it feel like home.
We moved here a year ago due to my husband changing jobs. It was a hard move for me to make. Everyone kept saying I should be used to it by now since we had been in the military and we have had our share of moves. But this was the first time we were moving and two of our kids were not. I think that left me in a funk for awhile. I did work on my bedroom pretty quickly. Only because it was covered in wallpaper that made me nauseous. It had to go if I was going to sleep well!

I love this house for what and who is inside it. Family and friends and my treasures. It has just taken me awhile to get here. I'm making progress. While I work on painting and decorating to make the house something I love more, I began to realize that I love the home that it is already.
Pictures were taken my son #1 except for the bedroom and hall tree.Thanks.
