Changing Gears

I've been a little distracted this week because the boy and I were getting ready to close next week on this cute little A-frame house. We had been through a lot trying to get the house since February and it was all finally coming together — though along the way seemingly  everything that could go wrong did. It must have been for a reason because — as some of you may already know from my other online rantings—it fell through earlier in the week. There was a court decision in Michigan that calls into question a certain kind of foreclosure and, of course, this house was that kind. So sadly, this poor little houses will have to sit empty for even longer because now no one can buy it. I may go into more detail next week and explain step-by-step how this whole thing proceeded since we first bid on the house in February because it may be helpful to others in a similar situation. 

In the meantime though, we're dreaming about new possibilities and adventures, including these amazing houseboats. What do you think? I could be very happy in one of these!

So for now, I'm busy getting ready — and getting super excited—for the Crafty Supermarket in Cincinnati this weekend and road trippin' to Renegade Austin in two weeks! Hooray for road trips and houseboats! Have a great weekend!


  1. It's so cute! I can't wait to attend backyard bonfire parties :)

  2. No go, Amanda. Sadly it fell through — hence the houseboats. How's about deckside bonfires?!?!?!

  3. sherri and i just drooled over your almost-house-to-be for awhile. it was the perfect little slice of up north, i can see why you fell in love with it. so sorry it didn't work out-- i think its almost impossible not to get emotionally invested once you find the one. i hope there's another out there for you two that's just as wonderful (on land or sea)

  4. Thanks, Marcy! It's also the time we invested in doing all the wonky things the seller was requiring that makes it frustrating. But we'll find something that is even better — I'm sure of it! Thanks again!
