My House Tour

My House Tour

People have started asking me why I never write about my house and the answer is… well… it’s my house.

I never really think a lot about my house. I’m always thinking about your house. LOL

BUT, I have been told that there is like this unwritten rule or something that bloggers give a house tour of their own home and since mine is on the market and is suddenly being shown a lot I figured I better get on it.

I can’t write about my home without first talking about my awesome neighborhood. Can I tell you how much I love this neighborhood? No, I mean seriously LOVE it.

We live in a TND (traditional neighborhood development) called The Waters. You can read all about it here. We have been a part of the development from the very beginning and to say that these folks are like family would be the understatement of the century. If there was a fire and you asked me what I would grab there is a fair chance I would say my neighbors.

We have had snow twice in the 8 years that we have been here (yesterday was the 2nd-pretty cool) and we REALLY sparkle in the snow.

That is the beautiful white chapel at the top of our street. Rather Norman Rockwell isn’t it?

At Christmas all of the houses put garland and white lights on their porches.

Every season is special. This is our little bungalow ready for The Fourth Of July.

Porches are very important here. We are always ready to share a glass of sweet tea and each others joys as well as sorrows…

all on the front porch. (unless it’s snowing, of course.)

I will talk more about specific features later but for now, here are the major rooms in our little corner of the world.

  • Cindy,
    Your home at The Waters is so charming…love the style and that front porch is awesome! You have it decorated so nicely…I’m sure that it will sell fast. Are you staying in the neighborhood?

  • Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based on the same ideas you
    discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would appreciate your work.
    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
