Feast your eyes on house number one - best kitchen in the Boise market by far:
And a butler's pantry to boot.
Check out this idyllic view!
This is the dressing room that connects the His and Hers walk in closets.
OK, and my second swoon-worthy house love of the moment:
Separate Guest Quarters for Grammy's golden years. :)
The backyard is right on the Greenbelt and Boise River.
Ben wisely pointed out that what I actually love about this home is the furniture.
This kitchen makes me feel so happy inside.
After so much visual gluttony, I feel compelled to make the following note. Some of the happiest times of my life have been while living in cramped, dingy apartments. As a missionary, I'd often bunk with several other sisters in apartments with little to no aesthetic appeal, furnished with hand-me-down donations. College life was joyous and exciting because of the relationships and experiences; the cinder block walls, limited storage, and dated furniture had little effect on my high contentment level. While I enjoy the guilty pleasure of house dreaming from time to time, I try to also use it as a reminder that the best things in life aren't things. A house is made a home by the people you reside with and the laughter and fun you share in it.
I hope everyone gets out and votes this election day. I am excited to do so for the first time, and will try to practice deep breathing and think happy thoughts while we watch the election coverage.
