Our very own Madison house

emerald house

On June 16th we became home owners in Madison. Owning a house in Madison has been a dream of mine, long before SB, before…I can’t even remember…since I knew what it meant to own a house. In college I would take walks late at night, looking at the cozy homes on the Isthmus and wonder what house would someday be mine. After I met SB, we spent many beautiful evenings fantasizing about our own future house. The journey of home ownership in Atlanta did not deter our dream of our one day Madison home. Now, next week, we will move into this house. A house that we now own but is not yet our home.

For the past three weeks, with papers signed, we jumped into home improvement. The first day we picked out our first paint samples and began our new house PORP (project of ridiculous proportions). I’ve learned a ton and the house as our home has started to take shape. I can’t wait to know what our house will become.


  1. Congratulations! I can’t wait to visit! By the time I am in the area, I hope the project of RIDICULOUS proportions will have become a project of REALIZABLE proportions.

  3. Thank you! I can’t wait to be all moved in, then I think the projects will not be so overwhelming because at least we will be living in one place.
