The house I currently live in was my grandparent’s house. My family and I have lived here four separate times in between moving, but now, we're here for good. This is the house where every holiday is spent. It’s the place birthdays are celebrated and get-togethers are hosted. Sleepovers, golf-cart rides, make-believe adventures, bonfires, tennis matches, Jet Ski races, long walks, and long talks have taken place here. People have been raised here, grown up here, moved in, and moved out. Fun, food, and laughter are non-negotiable here, and whether coming or going, you can always be sure to walk through the door with a smile on your face.
Open and spacious
My dream work environment, but also the perfect place for chillin'

Inhabited by 7 strange and psychotic, yet lovable creatures

The place where memories are made (the following pics were taken the day before my love left the U.S. almost two years ago)
As I watch the last school year of my life fly by, and the beginning of real life drawing nearer, I’ve become mindful of everything that I may have neglected or taken for granted. Home is one of those things. To put it simply, there’s no place like home.
