Simple and Crazy.
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.
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.
