Tucked away on a quiet, woodsy road near the Coast of Maine, I came upon a small abandoned cottage at the edge of a meadow. I purchased the house in June 2012 and immediately began renovating the home and nine acres of land. On April Fools' Day 2013, however, everything changed! Not only has my home been reconstructed almost overnight, I have as well! I invite you to join this experience with me as I journal about the miracles along the way.

I'm All Moved In!
Finally...I'm all moved in! There is much unpacking and organizing to do, but I'm here in the cottage. I honestly think it was one of the best, and happiest nights of my life. After Michael helped me unloaded everything, I hung the curtains, a.k.a. sheets, and he had the great idea of running to the store to buy a bottle of champagne. I furiously rummaged through boxes, looking for glasses, finding them just as he walked through the door with the bottle.
I'm Finally Home.
We toasted, laughed, congratulated each other on a job well done and then I heard what could only be coyotes howling just outside the cottage. We ran to the door, and cracked it open just enough to hear them sing. Oh, it was a wonderful concert indeed. It was a song of welcome, and I felt right at home.
Afterward, Michael headed back to Friendship to start yet another new job.
He did an amazing job here and I was glad to have his help and expertise.
