Hey, it’s okay to admit. Perfect is not in our price range, and I’d gather, it’s not in yours, either.
In fact, it’s kind of liberating.
Gives us freedom to find something that is just fine thank you, and not perfect.
See, for us, there is no such thing as a perfect home.
Brent wants to be close to work, I want to live in a fun neighborhood.
Brent does not work in a fun neighborhood.
We both want a yard.
We both want a bit of breathing room.
I want an amazing kitchen, Brent wants a place where he knows how to use the appliances.
I get distracted by Pinterest, but you know what?
Living in a Pinterest-perfect home runs counter to what we want to do with our whole lives.
So, do we remodel an imperfect space?
Or do we make do with what we have, and, crazy thought, replace things when they’re broken?
Let’s go for the latter, to start. Paint? Sure. Update base plates? All right!
But let’s leave the bajillion dollar renovations for another day. Or another lifetime.
