Our first home, purchased in August 2016. Polly, on Palmer, may always be our favorite as she represents the first, and hopefully not the only home in our new adventure.
And it’s a family affair…
The kids find out we bought a house:
We know a kind, older women owned the home for years and put lots of care and love into it. Neighbors speak fondly of her. Her older son moved in at some point and after the woman passed away, the house began it’s decline until the bank finally took possession a few years later and forced squatters out. You can imagine its condition.
We found several of the woman’s affects like old Polaroids and her bible, which doubled as her address book. And so we feel a sort of attachment to her. And we think she’d be proud to see us restore this sweet home.
