My House of Dreams

Two years ago I found myself in the incredibly lucky position to be able to buy my own house. The house hunt itself was pretty easy because once I saw the House of Dreams I knew that I had to have it. The thing was that the house was absolutely disgusting. There were stains on the carpet the size of a person. The walls were black with dirt (how is that even possible). The ceiling fans had feet of dust hanging off of them (the dust was hanging so low that even I could touch it). The yard was so overgrown that you could barely see the windows. I won't even mention the kitchen because it was to gross for words! The good news for me was that I could see the potential in the house, and I was able to get a LOT of work done on it as part of the deal.
It's been two years and I still absolutely love my house. I love that there are rooms that are still unfinished and empty because I haven't found the right inspiration for them yet. I love that the rooms I have finished were done exactly the way I want them. I love that I can have a completely frustrating and annoying day at work and then come home an instantly relax when I walk into my house!
It is still a work in progress, and one that I love working on....now if only I knew what to do with that extra bedroom.


  1. Your house is beautiful!! Even your house LOOKS happy! Congratulations! Condo life has its ups and downs, but we love our home too!

  2. I have an idea for that bedroom. :-) Obviously I mean a room just for ME!

    Seriously, I tagged you on my site tonight. Check it out.
