Our Home We have loved every second of making this house our home. It started with a small vision and ended with a complete renovation making every space perfect for our growing family. Those who walk through our door feel right at home. Our home fills us with a sense of peace and calming, the kind you find on vacation. Coming home, here, feels like a permanent vacation - just one that requires lots of TLC and chores! Ashley has created a beautiful nursery and this nursery will be the room we lay all our children down to rest at night. Our nursery already holds a lot of love and memories and our hearts overflow with simply the thought of raising another baby in that room. The main room on the second floor is a playroom and we’ve made it the perfect play haven with every safeguard in place. Our property is large with mature trees, many of which Emeline claims as her “climbing tree”, we have a greenbelt behind us and breathtaking hill country views. We have a long driveway and live on a cul-de-sac, making it an ideal place for children to ride bikes and scooters, cover every square inch of the driveway with sidewalk chalk drawings and pretend play for hours. We often spend our evenings grilling under the back porch, swinging with the girls under an old oak tree, jumping on the trampoline, swimming in the pool, soaking after a long day in the hot tub, or roasting marshmallows while cuddling by the fire. Our home is a safe and loving environment that we love and cherish coming home to everyday. Each day as we enter our driveway, our girls joke, “Who owns this house? We need to send them a note saying we would like to buy it.” and then, we are the blessed ones who pull into the garage and walk inside these doors to home. Our Community We live in a beautiful community just outside the hustle-and-bustle of the city, with sweeping views of the hill country. Our neighborhood is in the hill country, which means it is near a number of natural wonders, surrounded by beautiful live oak trees, and we are fortunate to live amongst an abundance of deer and bird life. Located within our community is a clubhouse, a lazy river pool, fishing ponds, a playground and sport court, a nature preserve and nature trails. All of these things are within walking distance from us, and we often take the girls to a nearby pond to feed wildlife, the park for playdates, or even just for a stroll or bike ride in the neighborhood or hiking trails. Many of our neighbors have ATVs or golf carts and it’s not unusual to see us driving around the neighborhood taking in the beauty around us. We have a close-knit community, each neighbor waves as you pass by and seeks to be there for one another, just as it should be. Our next-door neighbors are the kind of people you dream about sharing a fence with. We share celebrations with them, they share their garden with us, and they treat our girls to holiday and birthday surprises. It’s a beautiful relationship we all cherish. There is so much to do nearby that we can enjoy plenty of fun-filled weekends right here in our own “backyard”.
