To make a house a home...

It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home. ~Author Unknown

A little over two years ago, we moved into a lovely rental house in Fuquay. It was a brand new house that seemed just perfect for us.

Welcome Home

Two years later, it still is. While things are not quite so new as they once were, we have settled in and made it our home.

The cool thing is that, by this time next week, it will really be OUR home. We have worked out a deal to buy our house from our landlord, so as of next Thursday morning, Dave and I will be happy home owners! (And we don't even have to move!)

And then it was June...

Did you see the speeding bullet that just plowed through here? I only got a glimpse, but I'm pretty sure that was May. Happy (belated) Memorial Day!

Dave and I had a very nice mini-vacation. It started with my 30th birthday. A very big thank you to all who made my birthday extra special!

Before we left, I tested out my new sewing machine by making an Eeyore apron for my sister-in-law and a Little Mermaid half apron for my niece. But you'll just have to image their beauty since I forgot to take pictures! I'm looking forward to spending some more time with my new machine!

After dropping Sadie off at my parents' house, Dave and I set off for Atlanta to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and niece. We had fun checking out some of the sites (especially the behind the scenes tour of CNN) and just generally hanging out with the fam.
