The First Time I Laid Eyes on Her
It was just a year ago. The first time I drove up and saw her standing there. Quiet and solemn, I also noticed that she looked a little “rough around the edges” and yet at the same time proud about her experience. Even though she was older she appeared to have good bones, her shape was classic and it was all enough to call out to me, to catch my interest and draw me in. She stood front and center on the street and seemed to say….what you see is what you get. I got out of the car and walk around her. I looked her up and down. It wasn’t long before I knew I liked what I saw so I made an offer….and it was accepted.
Yes, it was one year ago today when our offer on this house we now live in was accepted. I still think my girl stands proud and is rough around the edges. Day by day, project by project, this house is sharing her love with us. She’s not perfect but that’s okay because neither am I.
Desire moved us to this home and I feel the love.
