The stars aligned

We just purchased this home on West Saint Johns. 

I feel very lucky...this was the only home on the market (in the neighborhood) under our target price point and it has the biggest lot. The inspector and appraiser were both surprised with the good condition of the property. We'll be able to preserve most of the framing and all of the foundation. Also, we're recycling all of the aluminum siding and tin roof.

You can't miss the star theme throughout the house. Only after we purchased it did we discover that the owner made the star that's on the ceiling in the rotunda of the State Capitol building. He made a replica in the backyard.

Wings 'n More

Madison loves wings and wands.  She's part princess, part angel and part wild thing! Yvette got her these wings for her birthday and we happened to find a bag full of wands sitting on our front porch a few days later....hmmmm.

She loves playing Max and Ruby. The cat always ends up being Max. Poor Lelu.

Maddy is turning three! A fancy tea party, there will be!
