Outside our new home

I am going to show you the outside and then come back another day for the inside.  My computer is making me load one picture leave the page and come back to post another.  So another day for pictures.  I have some decorating done.......just by whatever box got unpacked.  I think my Christmas bins are buried, as soon you will see. 
The first picture is a sunset on the pond.  The pond will get bigger as they recently did maintenance on it. 
This is the front of our condo.  I really think it looks like a little cottage in the woods.  We have this for a front yard and even a back yard.  There is also a stream to the side.  We are attached to one other condo but our entrances are each on other ends.  I think having so much green space it feels like a house more than condo.  Only these two condos set away from the others that you can see in the first picture. 

Just a little bit of Christmas.

Our little porch.

So that's the front.  More another day.

It's a sad day here, Hubby's mother passed away this morning.  It was time but it still is sad. 
Off to get the grands from the school bus.  xo

It was so great to hear from you, Debby! I've missed you! I'm so happy for you on your move---the condo is so pretty and having all the looks like a very cozy home. That pond is gorgeous. I love having water around. I hope it attracts ducks.

Just wondering, are you near your previous home and family?

Happy holidays to you and yours and thanks so much for visiting!

My sympathy on the loss of your mother-in-law.

So happy for you to begin this next chapter of your lives. All those months and months of dealing with real estate brokers and showings and trying to keep up the house and pets and everything in between. Not to mention health issues and family issues. I am hoping this season brings you peace.

What a great looking condo and I love the property! It's not often you see a condo situated on such a beautiful landscape. I'm sure you're going to get plenty of use out of your yard in the spring and summer months. I can only imagine watching the trees and landscape change over the year. Congratulations!

I loved this post. It is always so exciting to hear about someone buying a brand new home where they plan to live for many years. I have worked with buyers agents in the past myself and had great success with them when it came to both buying and selling houses, and it is something I recommend to people now because of it.

What a lovely new home! I just moved into a small house this year and love it. I think it's great to finally have the chance to call the shots when it comes to its design and whatnot. It's definitely a great way to have a fresh start in life. Can't wait to see how you're doing with your new home!
