The Next Step...

I got word this morning that a couple of my blogging friends are "moving"... That is, they are relocating their blogs to a new address (for a little more privacy/discretion).

I am moving as well. After relocating down this way almost 10 months ago, I think it's time to get a place of my own. Well, my own until Michael gets his transfer with work and moves in too. It has been wonderful living here with my housemate/landlord, she is a great person and we get along famously. However, as much as I like the place and my roomie, it's not mine. It's time for me to take the next step and make my own home again...


This is a picture of the front of the house. It's actually a duplex in an old established neighborhood in nearby Portsmouth (the other P-Town), VA. It's a little further from work, but there are no tunnels to commute through, so traffic should not be bad. Michael will have a couple of stores to choose from when openings present themselves. The house has so much character, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and a full width front porch for people watching.


This is a view from the living room into the dining room... The fireplace is decorative, but we think there is a gas line in it, so we may be able to put in a ventless gas insert.

There are windows in every room and the whole place is light and airy. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!

The rest will be up to us to make it "Home". I am so looking forward to it! I will share more as things progress. I should be totally moved in by the 15th of March.

Over and "Out" for today, from Chesapeake, VA

So are you buying it or renting it. I love houses with character, oh there can be problems (our house was built in 1812 so insulation, etc. are dodgie).

I'm also waiting for you to finally show a pic of mysterious Michael.
