SOLD!


It finally happened ~ our little blue cottage has been sold to someone who will love it and we are off to new adventures in our bigger home with much more space for our large family to tromp around in. WA-HOO! We no longer have to wait in line outside of the door to the one bathroom; if we all want to sit in the living room and watch the tube together in the evenings, we can do so without having to drag chairs in from the dining room and without having to sit elbow to elbow squeezed into our tiny area. We can now twirl around and do cartwheels in our master bedroom, Shilo no longer lives in the dungeon but has joined the real world in an above ground bedroom. We no longer look out all sides of our house to the next house three feet away ~ we now look out over the top of a school onto Youngs Bay and Saddle Mountain. We look out our side kitchen window to a mama deer and her two fawns walking up the drainage. We do look out our side living room windows into our neighbors back yard, but usually there is a raccoon or four hanging around their patio. We are in heaven. Below is a sneak peek of the new house taken off of the MLS listing. My new camera is scheduled to arrive before the end of the week, so stay tuned for a play by play tour of corners of our home. I can't wait to take you through my secret garden....

Woohoo, I get to be the first to congrat you on your new home! I expect ALOT more pictures when your camera arrives. :-p I hope everything else is going good, I just got back home from being in Ottawa. I had such a good time and took off from Toronto-Pearson International Airport in lightening storm (that was interesting). Alrighty, congrats again, I am so excited for you!

The "old" house looks so cute and cozy but the new place looks like it will have loads of room, be bright and airy! Just what a family of more than two needs, right?

wooo hoooo! Congrats on your sale. It can be so stressful, and once it's over it feels so good to move on, even if it's a little sad too.

Can't wait to see some photos of your beautiful home and what you do with it!
