The Next Phase Of Our Lives: Just Add Water

It has been a long time since my last post and a lot has happened.  My husband and I RETIRED, we added 2 more grand babies to our family and we sold our house. We thought that we would live in our current house for many more years but the state of Alabama was calling us to move closer to those grand babies.  In one week,we will be moving from the house we have lived in for almost 11 years (and finally have it decorated "like we like it") to an older fixer upper. There will be lots of projects to keep us busy.

This is our current house: It was raining and overcast when the picture was taken.

We love everything about this house but there was one thing we always wanted to do at this house but couldn't: 
ADD WATER!  LAKE WATER!  After weeks of searching for THAT house, you know the one that speaks to you as soon as you walk in the front door, (well it didn't speak to me until we saw the back yard), we found it!  It is completely opposite from our current house but it has WATER.  My husband and I are becoming house whisperers.  It is going to take a lot of work and elbow grease but we look forward to the challenge.

Here it is:

And it has WATER!  Lots of WATER!  Two kinds of WATER!

I'll admit that I was not interested in the house at all until I walked in the back yard.  It was calling my name.  We have hired a contractor to do a lot of the big work but my husband and I are going to do a lot of work too.  The first thing on our "to do" list is to get the interior and exterior of the house done and then we will move on the outdoor projects.  

We are going to be the Chip and Joanna Gaines of Florence, Alabama.  Check back periodically because I will be posting the progress.
