Maybe it's because of where we are at the moment, after the rollercoaster ride of deciding to sell, trying to buy, having multiple offers on our place and finally deciding to stay put regardless of the dream offer, we're completely at peace with our decision to stay in our home, with the excitement (it's exciting at least in the planning phase!) of building on.
So, the other afternoon, we were just hanging out at home and I took a few photos. I must admit, since having a new camera, I actually get it out less, but I do love the photos it takes, even if I don't understand most of the settings yet!
Incidentally, anyone who is my friend on facebook, this is the same afternoon that Penny took my 24 hour lipstick to school for 'news'
These last two pictures are a little special - Penny is about the same age as this little blossom tree, a tree which always reminds me of my Dad. You might not be able to see it in the pictures, but it's now sporting a big patch of blue paint which matches the fence...the tree kind of got in the way when I was painting the fence - it all adds to it's story right?
The tree is blossoming at the moment, just as my gorgeous little girl is. And there she is, sitting outside the place we've chosen to be our future home, not just our 'it'll do for now home' as we'd always considered it before.
Watch this space, the plans are being drawn up at the moment. The building is likely to begin in February and no doubt I'll need to look back on this post and remember times when I felt more at peace with the process.
