Mirror Lake Cottage...
Our new house is starting to feel like "home"! My honey and I have enjoyed picking out the paint colors, furniture, bedding, art, etc. While we still have a bathroom to remodel, flooring that needs to be replaced and other things that need to be done... we are enjoying this journey.
Since we purchased this home on a whim, and let the pull of the ocean draw us in we are in no rush to finish everything at once. All the little imperfections don't bother me at all, which if you know me... it is so unlike me. I have gone from having granite counters, cherry cabinets, tumbled marble backsplash, stainless appliances in my other home to formica counters, plain white applicances and oak cabinets in the new home and I just don't care. I love this house the way it is. It's not fussy, just a fun place to be and my little bit of heaven. Having the gateway to the Atlantic Ocean in my back yard is enough for me.
Everyday is exciting, I love having twenty ducks come swimming up to our dock begging to be fed. We also have frequent visits from the most beautiful swans, one in paticular likes hissing at our dog; Alexis, she is unfazed and doesn't even bark at him. We also have cranes that stop by, I'm amazed each time a crane takes off from the water, their wing span is unreal and it really is awesome to watch them fly!I hope you enjoy the pictures I have shared today, once we have more done I will post more.
Thank you for visiting, your kind comments are so appreciated!
