Hello, Cuties. It has been a long road (just over 2 years) but my husband and I finally found a house we both love and in our budget. We signed the papers today and I will be moving to Arkansas July 4th weekend. My husband and I will finally be living in the same house after 6 years of him working in another state while I was still in Texas. At the time my parents were in poor health and I didn't want to move away but they have both passed away and now it is time to be together again. The house is large enough for me to quit using the dining room as my sewing room, has room for the children and grandchildren to visit, has land for my husband to garden and has the added bonus of a pond with fish in the front yard. I have attached a link. Becky

What a wonderful home! Congratulations! I've been searching for a new place for a couple of years now, and it isn't easy. Will your new abode have internet? That has been the biggest problem for me; each perfect place has had no internet access. Enjoy the move and getting to know your husband again!

AT&T is the internet provider. We will have to see how reliable it is.

Your new home is absolutely beautiful! It is wonderful that you and your husband will finally be reunited. That is a long time to be apart. Good luck on your move. Hugs, Joyce

Wow lovely house I can see why you are so excited. Don't know how much work you are going to get done the outside views are fantastic. I could see myself taking a coffee outside and losing track of time. Enjoy your new home.

I agree! I know for awhile we will just enjoy being outside. When we described the house to our daughter, she had to say, "And what about the house?". I said, "Oh, yes there is a house too." lol

I will use the family room for my 6 needle so I can be near it in the kitchen or when I am in the family room.

The pictures are actually from 2 years ago. The people who lived in it on a lease/purchase were not very kind to it. They have stripped most of the wall paper to the sheet rock damaging the sheet rock. They did not add water softener so there is a lot of calcium build up. It all just a lot of "husband" labor. :) I will help when I can but he plans to work on it before we move in. The structure is sound and all the rest can be fixed.

We were at the home improvement store this morning looking for Texas landscape stones (didn't find them) and outdoor table and chairs. This is fun. :)

I will use one of the four bedrooms for sewing sewing and my 6 needle will go in the den/family room so I can be near it in the kitchen or family room. We can finally have a dining room meant for people and not a sewing machine, a serger and an embroidery machine. lol

My husband has flex work schedule with the US Govt so every other week he had a three day weekend. Little Rock, Ark and Carrollton, Texas are only 4 1/2 hours apart. I felt bad for him because it seems some weekends home all he did was home maintenance.

We have a 3 year old grandson who is looking forward to fishing. One catfish we saw was 18 to 20 inches long. He might be that long because he knows how to avoid "bait".

Wow! Becky what a fantastic home and so big. I can't get over how reasonable house prices are in America. A place like yours with acreage is hundreds of thousands of dollars here in Australia! Well done on getting such a wonderful place to spend the rest of your life in. Good luck with the fishing etc. Love and blessings Chris

Yay! And they lived happily ever after. So glad you two got back together, address-wise.

We live on a pond - with lots of critters - snakes, deer, wild turkeys, foxes, hawks, scorpions, wasps, yellow jackets, bees... Get to know your exterminator so you can love pond life!

I didn't need to know about the snakes and wasps and yellow jackets. We have been spraying for ticks even before we knew we had the property.

Let me be the first to say Congratulations! That is excellent news. Good to see you! Fabulous pond, a little bigger you could water ski! lol! It looks perfect! lots of room and the garage with attached shed, right?

Actually the garage is attached to the house which isn't shown in the pictures. The white building is a converted barn with a lean-to on the side. It will be our storage and my husband's workshop.
