This House

This house is full of life, brimming and sometimes overflowing.  Tonight, though, the two older boys were off doing extra curricular activities, the two little boys were outside with their dad and the dog doing lawn maintenance things, and I was inside...all by myself.  It is rare and weird.  So, this is what I noticed.

This house is still and quiet when everyone is out.

This house is noisy and full when everyone is in.

This house is older than most in the area.

This house is full of character, and most of the time, characters.

This house is open and airy and light.

This house is a unique tri-level, modeled after a mountain cabin.

This house was built by our next door neighbor when he was planning to begin a family.

This house has raised seven boys, three of theirs and the four of ours.

This house is mostly brown, inside and out.

This house is our home, our base, our safe place.

This house is ours for the last 16 years today. 

I didn't think of the anniversary until looking at the date just now.  How cool!  We love our house, its location, and the neighbors!  We are blessed beyond measure to be raising our family here.


  1. Love that the date synced with the thinking! Too cool :)

  2. Love the quiet time reflection.

  3. I hope you were able to enjoy the small quiet time of reflection! My house-aversary is coming up next month and I still love it as much as I did (maybe more than) when I first bought it 5 years ago!
