Simple and Crazy.

When my daughter and I walked into the house, we just loved it. It was a Sunday, which in our life means "Soccer Sunday" and the two of us know Daddy is at a game. J was totally a'ok with us checking out the house. I mean, it was the first house we took seriously after the day before talking with our friend and realtor told us we weren't crazy to consider the idea of selling our town home.

It wouldn't be the house.

"Mommy, I want to win this house" is what M said over again over again while running through the house.

"Me too" I said under my breath.

But it was the house- and it was crazy. The midcentury look. The colors. The beachy feel. The neighborhood. The landscaping. I just loved it, but was pretty sure I was crazy and J would talk me out of it.

He didn't.

And we moved and sold in a little more than a month (thank you Cassie & Sol!!!!!!) and we're loving the house each day. I can't believe I live here and lilacs and peonies are started to bud. I no longer have to go to the apartment building next door and snip a hydrangea in the summer from the landlords property (who btw would just chop them down anyway...) M has plenty of room to be a kid. We can host many folks visiting or just for dinner. It's just our home.

I can't wait to see what's next down the road for us in this house.

Here's to simple yet totally crazy ideas working out with the help* of your friends, family, and a little bit of insanity running through your veins.

*Thanks again to Cassie & Sol, Mom and Dad, all of our friends & family who listened to our stress about the move/moving, old neighbors, The Burns Clan, GLM, and more.
