There's No Place Like Home

I love our home.

When we decided to buy it, the husband informed me that we would only be here a couple of years, three at the most before we moved. I thought that was a little ridiculous. What was the point of buying a new home and moving in for such a short time. I knew that time would go buy in no time and we would still be here.

I was right. We are still here and it has been over four and half years. I really like our house. In fact I would say it has been in the past year that we've been decorating and making this house a home.

Even though we love our current home, we are dreamers. Andrew has house design software on his computer. He is constantly is designing us a new house. We like a variety of styles. Every new house he designs is vastly different from the last.

For the past couple of days we have been looking at land and talking about this whole building a house thing a little more seriously.

We're still far from being serious, I think. I don't know. It's hard to tell. Andrew talks about something for months even years and does nothing. But then again we also decided to buy our current home in a week. We finally decided to go to D.C. even faster than that.

After six years of marriage, I still haven't learned to tell how far he is from just jumping into a decision.

All that to say we are looking at land. We have found some that I think Andrew loves. I still need some convincing. It's A LOT of land. Probably more than we would ever use.

It's closer to my parents. It makes Andrew's commute to work shorter.

It doubles my commute to work.

It's in the middle of nowhere.

I'm still very unsure as you can see. We are just talking right now.

The scary part is that it could be my home for the rest of my life. Yes, I know Andrew and I are still very young. I just think that whatever we do next, is it. It will be our home for a very long time. It will be where we have babies and where we grow old. I just want to get it right.


  1. Best of luck on your decision!! Even though it's scary, it's a fun time. I love our home now, but can't wait to move into a home where our children will someday grow up.

  2. Good luck!! Have fun dreaming of your next home!!
