a home tour

Oct 6, 2011

One of my very favorite {blog-reading} things is when bloggers post tours of their homes on their blog.

I don't know what it is about touring a virtual "friends" home. Maybe it makes me feel like we could be friends in real life? Like I could picture myself having dinner at their table or having a cup of coffee with them in their little reading nook. Whatever it is - it's just dang interesting to me.

Now I know I have posted pics here and there of our condo, but never have I taken you on a "tour" per-say. Well... wait no longer :)

You see we are moving in a little over a week so there's a bit of a bitter sweet underlying message in this post. Here are some bitter & sweet thoughts...

Bitter -
- This was the first home we purchased.
- We brought both of our girls home to this cozy space.
- We've called this place "home" for the past 5 years so there are tons of memories.

*tear*

Sweet -
- We're just outgrowing our 2 bedroom, 2nd floor, no garage space home.
- We're moving to a home that has a lawn (YIPEE!) and has 4 bedrooms ( double YIPEE!)

Without further ado....I invite you to picture yourself coming over for a cup of coffee at our place RIGHT NOW....

Here's what you'd see...
Full Disclosure: Yes - these pics were taken for the MLS, so NO - our home never looks this clean.


*****
In case you care : Two of my top pick virtual tours are Sherry and John from Young House Love (of course - how could I not include them?) and coming in a close second is Michelle from 4 Men and 1 Lady.

It's as if you don't have kids and you left out the random location for Elsie's sleeping arrangements ;-) Lovely! Thanks
