Backyard Perfection Day 16 of 31



Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting the Slice of Life March challenge where writers have pledged to write each day of March.  Please visit their site to read other slices and leave some comment love.


I am not in love with my new house.  Friends assure me that it's normal to feel that way at first.  Although after living here for almost 6 months, I thought it would be better.  I don't feel settled because I look around and think about what I want to change.  We've developed quite a list of what we'd like to do to make the house ours.  

Sometimes my husband and I play with the idea of fixing up a few things and selling it.  We bought it so quickly.  Did we make a mistake?  We go back and forth every week.

However, each time I step outside to the back yard, I feel hope.  It's this space that made me want to buy the  house.  

It's serene.  

It's beautiful.  

It's ours.

And when I'm out there, I stop and see the potential and think maybe this is where we're meant to be.  
This creek runs at the end of our property.

  1. Oh I would live in an RV if it sat near running water.

  2. Love that view, Julie - that would have sold the house for me, as well. You can't replace that!

  3. Julie,
    What a beautiful sunset! I'm thinking the spring and a little planting will help you find your love for the house.

  4. Love the picture! Beautiful. I hope the house will grow on you. I remember last year when you went back and forth about moving.
