Living the Dream at Harbour - 'Home Sweet Home' !!!!

I feel like living the dream at my New Home !!!!!!!!!!

It is a place where I enjoy the first amber rays of sun streaming through windows and sheers !
Delighted to read Aesop's fables and family fables to my growing buddy !
Like to brew a cup of green tea in my kitchen and gazing out at  dew drops on the grass !
Savour a simple supper on the deck full of baskets of morning glory !
Fond of feeding the birds chirping in the bird house !
Get mesmerised by the sight of the deers running in the backyard and
Simply love a perfect tinkle of wind chimes, every time the wind breezes and it drizzles !!!!
A serene and peaceful place to relax and rejuvenate, to enjoy the nature and the Almighty's grace !!!!!

Reminiscing about the once upon a time days when making a 'home' with play cards; in the drawing books; and with sand on the shores used to make up for happy hours...! 

Now every Sunday began with the hunt for the Dream Home. We were on virtually an open house spree......!!!!!!!!

Streaming one house after another....!

The hunt for the perfect home continued week after week.....!!

At last we did found our own cozy space called, 'Home Sweet Home' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After walking in and out of number of houses, as I stepped into this house, it smelled like "HOME" to me.

There were huge empty walls, empty rooms and empty closets......!
I felt like getting an opportunity to start the life on a fresh note...!
Curled up near the window panes with a big drawing pad, spent days and nights religiously doodling our plans for the decor of the house.

Yes, to be precise it was like having an 'Idea Marathon.'

And here we are couple of weeks later, unpacking our stuff, still continuing with the activity though and making this place as our own Lil' world ! It was just going crazy and crazy everyday with innumerable trips to Home Depot and Lowe's ! I did ended up make beautiful paintings for family room and my munchkin's room !

On Browsing through different chapters of my life experiences and excursions,  I often pondered on the ways to make the most happening and memorable days of life. I sat down and realized it wasn't shopping in Milan or strolling in the New York city.

It is indeed carving a niche for yourself, enjoying the simple pleasures of life, right at your own harbor - Home !  

Pretty soon I realized that my home has become like a small observatory to my mind and soul, a perfect place to unwind and kindle beautiful memories of past and at times of future.... !!!!

Here is a sneak peek of our new 'Home Sweet Home' !

Blooming Soft Pink Roses in my Backyard Mini Rose Garden !

Belonging and becoming a  part of your dwelling, calls for celebrations.... !

Celebrating the happy moments with family and friends is priceless......!!!!!!!!

Welcome Guys to My New Home !!!!!

 Bringing an end to the week after week  unpacking mode, the weekend was spent in doing the rituals and housewarming ceremony with close friends followed by Buffet made at Home from Scratch. 

The menu had concoction of Asian and American appetizers, nibblers, main course and homemade red velvet cupcakes in the dessert for the little fellows!

A bunch of Fresh Flowers for the Dashboard of the Harbour !

The Sunny Side Up of my Kitchen !
The Kitchen Island turns into Learning Pad with Quick Breakfast & Dinner Makeovers  !!!! 
My Cozy Corner from Dawn to Dusk to Enjoy breakfast & Supper; Beauty & Bliss of Nature;
with a picture perfect view of Geese & Deers in the Backyard ...............!!!!

The Rays of Sun adding Warmness to my Nest.... !!!!

So finally we have settled in ready to get LinkedIn with the new neighbourhood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Everyday is a new day, giving me a platform to create new things and glide with the times !

Everything is looking so far so good... ! 

And I finally feel like living the dream at my New Home, Ever since !!!!!!!!!!

  10. Sonia,
    Your new home is very nice. Everything you've done so far looks cozy and lovely. I really like your deck outside, and the kitchen is fantastic. This post hit home for me, as we sold our big house to downsize, and will be getting a new home hopefully next year. It's such a hectic time moving, but special at the same time.

    Enjoy your new home, and this beautiful Christmas season.
