Saturday I went to see Sherlock Holmes with the family (really good by the way, at least I think so). I rode with my parents to and from the theater and on the drive home we passed a house that was for sale. Right next to the 'for sale' sign was a sign that read 'I'm beautiful on the inside!'
My first thought: Ah, the sweet spirit house.
For those of you who don't know, sweet spirit is a term often used to describe a girl who may not exactly be attractive on the outside, but she's a really nice person. At least that is the way it has been explained to me. Anyway, it made me smile because that totally goes into my whole theory about how house hunting is just like dating. Then it made me smile more because somehow I can relate everything to dating (i.e. baking, shopping at thrift stores, and now house hunting).
With that being said, I have fallen in love and feel more than ready to take a leap into the biggest commitment of my life (thus far). The house I went to look at yesterday is just as adorable in real life as it is in the pictures. Granted, it's got that, "I want to buy all new appliances right away" feel, but that's what I like to call 'potential'...plus, what house comes perfectly fit for you? None. I really want this house, cross your fingers and say some prayers for me!
