It is not a mid century but a turn of the century home and I am in love, again. It has a huge yard for fairies to play and girls to garden. It is situated in a neat little town where everything is in walking distance. It has charm, it has trees, lots of windows and it is where I see my family planting our roots. So, instead of celebrating Summer Solstice my family and I met with our Realtor at noon today to make an offer. We enjoyed a picnic in the yard and spent time imagining it as our home. I met the neighbor Ann who lives next door - she is a yoga instructor and has two beautiful children the same ages as Ella and Vivian. What joy! I am full of hope. I want this house.
I know some readers have connected with me because of our common "attached living" lifestyle. Our decision came down to needing a yard for the girls AND a strong need to lovingly create a home for our family. My husband and I love creating together, working on projects - making a house a home. Our condo is beautiful and luxurious. The views are gorgeous and everything is brand new. That's where it ends - funny huh? There is nothing for us to work on, change or improve. We feel old living here and our neighbors make it worst for us. There is a lack of unity between my husband and I because of this - and a disconnect with nature. We are excited with this fairly new revelation of our living situation - we are feeling re-energized - ready to make this house our home - working together as a couple - as friends - as a young family (ok we are not young but our kids are.) It will give us something to be passionate about - a shared passion and what is life without passion?
I am looking forward to celebrating the Summer Solstice with my Goddess Circle friends this Wednesday evening. We plan to gather around a bonfire, wear flowy dresses and dance under the moon. During the day I will celebrate with the girls - and enjoy the magic of the Sun's energy.
Hope you enjoyed this blessed day.
