House Tour 2013: The Outside
Our house is a cute little two story with a couple of walls completely covered in ivy. My mom and my aunt both think it looks like a fairy tale cottage. I took this picture from across the street so you could see the extremely tall tree in our backyard. It is one of the taller trees in our neighbourhood. We have a super-long driveway leading to a detached garage.
And that tree in the front is a Saskatoon berry tree. I grew up with Saskatoons and I LOVE them. They are like blueberries, only wayyyy better and I am thrilled that we have one in our front yard.
Sometimes, when dreaming about how we will use this house in the next five or ten years I am giddy and think, "Ahhhh! The joys of owning a house! Whoo hoo!!!!" Other times, when I think about being responsible for a new roof I think, "Ahhhh. The joys of owning a house?!?!?!?" But mostly it is very good and I feel very fortunate to be on the path of home ownership.
Note: I don't know how often I will be taking you on a tour of a room in our house but I think I will try to do Rachel or Sam's room for you in the next week or so. Thanks for being patient.
