We have a new house. On 75 Piper Lane in Mandeville, LA. I love this house, and I think everyone is so happy here. It needs some work, but it's perfect for us, and we will put our touches on it...eventually. There were a few things that sold me on this house. I love that it's on a cul de sac in a very small, quiet neighborhood. Although the kitchen needs updating, I love the lay out and the huge bench seat by the big bay window. I imagined family and friends sitting on that bench while I cooked. Gary has his own separate space above the garage for his office. I love the openness of it! I could go on and on! It seems to get better every day. Not only is the house great, we love the area. My mom told me I can't say, "Yes, it's right down the street" anymore. We have everything we need so close. All of my favorite stores are down the street, and we have 3 grocery stores within 5 minutes of our house. We love the neighborhood. There are a bunch of kids moving into the neighborhood, and our neighbors are great and friendly. There is a pond in the back of the neighborhood with ducks! We have ducks! It's really a great life for us, and I can see our future here. I can see our kids growing up here and growing old with Gary here.
