Sunday was moving day to the castle on the hill. Neighbors and their children kept stopping by to welcome us to the neighborhood, which just confirmed that this was the house for us. It may need some work - like shag carpeting to be pulled up, wall paper to be removed from EVERY room, and lots of time but it has a sort of fairytale charm that we are falling in love with more and more everyday. Last night after giving the kids a bath and getting them all snug in their new rooms, hubby and I snuck out to eat dinner on the porch and talk about what we needed to pick up and our to do list. The sun was just setting, we noticed we had a nice view of the houses down the hill, and then just like a movie, church bells started to chime - a neighbor across the street said "Hi" and we whispered to each other how happy we are.
I can't wait to show you the neighborhood - like the rose garden and park that's not even a block away, some of the neat features like the wavy glass windows and split staircase, and all the before and after that are to come.
