My Forever House

This is my forever house! My husband and I have been married for twenty-five years, raised two children, and lived in one apartment, three parsonages (still in the third one), and two homes of our own…all in five different states. Two and a half years ago, we bought this sweet little house on the Cape in Massachusetts. Someday we will retire here, but until then we spend most weekends, school vacations (I’m a teacher), and summers here. Slowly, but surely, I (we) are transforming this house from its dated 1970s decor to our own vision of modern beachy comfort. So excited to have a way to chronicle and share this journey without having to be a real-life blogger.

    So happy for you. The anticipation of a more peaceful life style is enough to get you through the process. Since I am originally from Connecticut, I know the beauty of the Cape in Massachusetts. I am a little jealous, since New England is “home”, but having grandchildren in Missouri is the focus now.

    Congrats on your house on the Cape. Been working on my husband for a couple of years now to do that but haven’t found the right one yet. Actually I did but someone else bought it! We just downsized and moved to another house in CT so now might be the time! Good luck and enjoy!

    Thanks, Barb! Houses on the Cape do go quick sometimes. We were lucky and saw our house the second day it was on the market. We knew immediately it was a house we could make our forever home. Keep looking…you’ll find the right one.

    What a dreamy home and a sweet reward for all your years of wandering. So nice that you are able to put down some beautiful roots.
