    I love that my home is is right next door to my cousin and her family and also to our grandparents. I never thought in a million years that I would be living in this area again, let a lone next door to them. But it works and it is perfect for my kids and my cousins children. I also love that my house has a nice spacious covered porch. I love being able to sit on it during rain storms in the summer and listen to the rain on the roof and watch the puddles form in the road.

  12. I love all of the natural light in our home…it’s beautiful!
