Our recent move seemed like the perfect opportunity to realize some dreams, but alas, that was not in the budget. Our new home, while lovely and very cozy, sits in the middle of a typical newer neighborhood, something I thought I would never do again.
The bottom line was this is what we could afford. There were no homes on land in our price range that were inhabitable. Either you had a nice house on no land or land with a house that needed tearing down. So, in the spirit of this blog, I am truly content to be where I am.
I am thankful we can own a home again, something I did not dare think about too much. I am thankful to have all that I need and a lot of what I wanted. I will work to make this home, home. And truly, if this home were on 5 acres, I would not be any more content. The 5 acres would just require more effort and perhaps right now a quarter of an acre is plenty.
