Our Humble Beginnings

This is our home, we're calling it our FOREVER home, and hoping it will be. We've wanted to plant roots and live in a place where I can finally have my white picket fence. Since we were wed in 2003 we have moved every 4 years- OR LESS! I guess we just hadn't found "the place"..... until now. We both are Florida Crackers and had recently been enjoying corn country in Indiana and one day we said "ok, we're done, let's go home." Home to us means somewhere you can see and smell the ocean. The phrase "wounds are healed by the sea" is our motto- when one of us get's sick, or a cut or a bad day our for sure cure is a day at the beach! Ask my kid, it even gets rid of Planters Warts! God gave us a miracle cure in that surf and sand. So, we looked up "the best surf break on the East Coast" and Google said it was in Folly Beach, SC. After a good couple of visits to Charleston and the surrounding islands and towns we knew we had found HOME. We sold off 2/3 of what we owned, put the rest in a POD and headed east. We found out fast that Charleston wasn't named the #1 city in America for nothing! It's AMAZING. We love this whole area and have finally found our forever home. Lovingly called in our family "the money pit." It's a great fixer-upper and we're excited to share with the world all the little fun projects we have in store for her. If any of you out there have ties to ANY HGTV show- we've got the perfect showcase home. :) Stay tuned for small reveals along the way.
