We just got in yesterday from a trip to Georgia, a loooong overdue trip. I got to see most of my family, learned that my stepsister and her husband are expecting a child, and got to see my brother's new house! Oh my!!
Now, I seldom have house envy. Oh, I did when we were living in an apartment. But since buying our house nearly three years ago, I have been content with my home. I've enjoyed making it into my home and have recently started on the landscaping. Then, I went to see Jon and April's new home. OH MY!
First of all, April is an artist, and she picked out some lovely colors for her walls. She and I have similar tastes, and I have told her that when we buy or build our dream home, she is picking out the colors for the walls. Anyhow, April has a great eye for decorating and placement. We both have spatial intelligence. We're spatial. Very spatial. (If you say that with a hick accent, it sounds like we're special. Very special)So even though the house was still full of boxes and stuff that needed to find a new home, it was possible to see how beautiful it was all going to be.
Hardwood floors. Cherry kitchen cabinets. Deck. Loft. 3.5 bathrooms. Finished basement. Hidey places in closets. I LOVE THIS HOUSE!!
Even Aaron, who doesn't want a new house, wants a new house after seeing their house. Sigh.
So I got on the web last night and began to look for houses in the area. Bleh. Either postage stamp size yards (we currently have a half an acre) or planned communities-- which equals rules that Aaron and I probably would have a hard time keeping.
Well, I will get over my house envy soon, I'm sure. But only because I'm going back to Georgia and moving in with my brother! :):) tee hee! Just kidding!
