q is for...


quaint.

Our first house... it seems like a million years ago! It was nestled in the woods along a winding road... and it seemed like a patch of spring was cut away just for the house. Picket fence... weathered shingles... stone foundation... an arbor around the doorway. Quaint. It was love at first sight... I'm not sure we even looked at another house. It was tiny... but it was ours. And we made it our home. It was where we brought our first baby home to... it was where we laughed with her and cried for her. It was hard to pack up and leave... our first real home together. We had a lot of dreams for that tiny house... but some dreams are meant to fade away... to make room for new ones. For us, it was a Florida home... and here we are...

Ahhh Quaint. Looks like the perfect little place to start your family. Your little cottage could have been painted by Thomas Kinkade!

This is the exact kind of house I always wanted when I was a little girl. Sometimes Quaint can be even more lovely than Magnificent and Grand. I love this!
