Just like that, I have moved. Throwing caution to the wind, my husband & I have bought a house, site unseen, packed up our truck, piled high like the Beverly Hillbillies & headed down south to a new adventure. Well, I may have over simplified & condensed the tale just a bite, but the facts remain the same. And now we find ourselves in our new home, a 100 year old fixer-uper in Charleston, SC.
It is difficult to explain to sensible people how we might have made this step, but it does seem as if we have a history of such behavior. It was with the same reckless abandon & sense of adventure that we purchased our little cottage in France more than twenty years ago. My only hope now is that we are not too old to do it all over again .
Seeing the house for the first time, after having seen it only in photos & seeing all of the work that needs to be done, was a bite overwhelming to say the least. But I have had time to adjust to its flaws as well as its many charms.
And there is so much to love about this city! I love the weather, the birds, the history, the architecture, the food....& on & on. Just as my life has taken a new turn, this blog will have a new life as well, following the ups & downs of fixing up an old house, while exploring the beautiful city of Charleston. I look forward to sharing it all with you!
