Call it what you will: small, quaint, cozy. There are many adjectives to describe our home, but I like “cozy cottage” best. We had dreams of owning 5 or 10 acres with an orchard and living in a big, beautiful white (….for me it has to be white!) farmhouse but this little California ranch-style house we find ourselves in is a pretty good second best.
Believe me, we’ve been around in circles. Do we add-on, renovate, move, or build? But when it comes down to it, we really love where we live, our neighbors, schools, proximity to our church and work. And finances….it always comes down to finances! All that to say, we have come full-circle and decided that this is where we are supposed to be. And we have peace about that. So join us as we document turning our home into the Farmhouse Cottage!
