a saturday

May 23 2015. 001 (48)

in september it will be two years since we have been in this house

and really, despite the roaches, the termites and the rats living in the walls, it’s been a good two years

it is an old house so despite the traps and the spraying, roaches are something we deal with on a daily basis

 there are definitely days when i curse this house up and down and want to pack up our bags and leave

but there is something about this house aside from its obvious beauty, big windows and magical light (and the roaches….ha!)

there is a certain “feeling” to this house

the same feeling that drew us to it since the first time we saw it

a good vibe sort of feeling

and let’s not forget the jungle of a garden and the pool…

we like sharing the things we have

a pool is something of high demand in this neighborhood

many of our neighbors don’t have one

and many of those same neighbors (as well as some old friends) had never been to our house or swam in our pool

so, last saturday we decided to have a pool brunch get together

we extended the invitation to a handful of neighbors (most with children), and at eleven in the morning we opened our doors

we swam (adults and children), we balanced on the slack line, we sang, we ate, drank, laughed…

it was nine at night when we closed our doors

i would say a good time was had by all

happy friday friends

wishing you all a happy weekend
