My Dream Home




I'm always looking at houses as we drive around. I search for a house that would give, what I consider to be, a perfect visual description of the word home. I've found many houses that have come close to what I like. But just the other day I found it - the perfect home. The kind of home I dream of having one day. The first time we saw it I was so taken away with it that John drove by a few times so I could look at it again and again. It wasn't until we drove by the third time that I noticed an older man sitting on the porch painting. Which made the home all the more dreamy to me.

We drove by this house again last night and it was simply beautiful. John stopped the car in front of the house so I could take it all in. It was dark outside. The lights on the front of the house gave a dim yellow glow lighting the house perfectly in a gentle way. Smoke floated like a feather from the chimneys mouth accenting the entire view of the home perfectly. I could feel what it would be like inside...cozy and warm. I imagine raising a family in the walls of that home and I'm....in love.

Claud, I was so excited to see that you started a blog!! I will definitely check it frequently. Ü Actually what's sad is that I keep in better touch with my friends that blog than through the actual phone. Blogging is so much fun, I love it! If you don't mind I'm going to put your link on my home page.

The right side of the house looks typically German, I've always liked that style
