I bought a house....now the fun really begins!
I purchased a very cute little bungalow in the Fountainbleau/Marleyville neighborhood in New Orleans, LA. I had been looking at houses for only a short time when I saw the listing for what I like to call, "the cuteness". Actually, I was not drawn to my house when I saw its pictures on the real estate website. It goes to show you that while a picture may be worth a thousand words, the real thing is always better! It was at the end of a long day of house viewing when we decided to "oh, we're in the neighborhood and we have an appointment" see one more house. As soon as I walked in, I knew I was home. It had such a great feel to it, welcoming, warm and cozy! And best yet, I could move right in and "make it my own" slowly.....no need for major wall moving or tearing out bathrooms or gutting kitchens! I have done all of these....and loved every minute of it, don't get me wrong! I just wanted a little less chaos and a lot more enjoyment this time around. So, as soon as I figure out how to post the pictures that I have of the house, I'll let you in on the progress and hopefully get some much needed and looked forward to input! See you soon!
