In the craziness of birthdays and leggie anniversaries I have not been able to update you on our move. We are moving. The Meyers family has found a perfect and fabulous little house to call home. Pictures are coming soon.
Michael and I have lived in a very nice apartment for 5 years now. It is not small and it is not dumpy but it is an apartment. We live on the fourth floor, the top. It has vaulted ceilings and is quite large (about 1000 square feet). There is an elevator and it is a very new and clean building. We live in a fantastic neighborhood that we adore. The problem is that we have no yard, no green space, no garden. We have several parks close, a few in walking distance but it doesn't feel the same as letting your kids lose in the back yard.
For a while we have been talking about finding a house to reside in. We have looked at many and considered a few. Michael, if you didn't know this already, is very picky. His favorite phrase when looking at a house for the first time is, "it's a dump" or just simply, "dumpy". Well, the first words he uttered upon seeing our new house was, "we'll take it".
Located conveniently a mile northeast of our current residence, the house is in the charming Maple Leaf district of Seattle (north of Greenlake). It is a 1930s Craftsman style with a large yard, fenced back yard, cute flower beds, new upgrade to the place and a super duper daylight basement with a huge playroom for the kids.
