Winter in the Village




Today the weather is too cold to leave the house and too cloudy to take pictures. A perfect day to take you on a Winter tour of The Village. This barn marks our entry into the Village area. Every time I see it I sigh. My cares melt away.
 
 
This is my happy place.

 
The place that feels like home.
 
The place my heart longs to be.

 
This morning I sent an email to our realtor. And now we wait.

 
We wait to see if our crazy/brave dream of moving to The Village might become a reality this year.  Or if we will have to wait a bit longer.

 
We know that good things come to those who wait. We know that if it's meant to be, it will be. We know that it is out of our hands. We also know that we are so ready right now and sometimes it's hard to be patient.

  1. I stare in awe at the red barn every day when I pass it. I'll say a little prayer for you and your family today that everything works out! Keep us posted = )

  4. Hi Jan,
    It is hard to be patient, especially when you want something this badly! The homes you showed today are so lovely. I especially like the white one. There is just something so homey and cozy about an older home. We have lived in both and they both have their good and bad qualities but I must admit, I probably prefer an older home. You will be in my prayers. Hang in there.

  9. Looks SO amazing! Is matching Christmas greenery a requirement? You should really surprise them all and bust out some giant Frosty inflatables. ;)

  14. I have a feeling you'll be there sooner than you expect. It's wonderful! It makes me want to bake a pie and drink latte's and languish at the library. Sigh.

  17. So tell me where exactly is this quaint area called "The Village"? Is it downtown Indy? I'm not from there, but I'm just so curious....

  18. Jen, your Village looks like a dreamy little spot to live. The homes are gorgeous and I LOVE the red barn. Such a beautiful "Welcome Home" sight ♥ Good Luck with your search ...what an exciting way to begin the New Year.
    P.S. Ernie would love a play date with Maggie too :-)

  19. Sorry Millie (not Maggie)...I think I've gotten Ernie in trouble all ready :-)

  20. So lovely. I can understand the desire to move there. We've been doing the whole "do we move" thing here. Alas, no adorable village in sight, just suburban-ness. Good luck!

  21. What a charming little town. I can just picture you there. Thanks for sharing with us, and btw, I think patience is highly overrated.

  22. Oh, I hope you get good news! The little village looks so idyllic.

  23. Love all of those homes and the RED barn! So Americana huh? I hope you get your way and you get to pack up and move before summer to enjoy all the fun out doorsy stuff in the lil town!

  24. Gosh, I can't decide which is my favorite. I think the Cape Cod.

    Emailing the realtor was the first step in countless ones along the way. But they will all be worthwhile steps once you are settled in the place you belong.

  25. Crossing my fingers for you. The hardest part is keeping the beds all made up and the kitchen clean while the house is on the market. Just keep your eye on the prize...and you will get through it.

  26. I will keep my fingers crossed too. You have inspired my husband and I too find a place like your village. We are starting to travel to places that may be our forever home!

  27. I hope your realtor gives you the news you want to hear- you are moving to the village. Good things come to those who wait and you all have waited patiently so it is your time.

  28. I understand how you feel! For 19 years we have lived in our town and I've wanted to live on a particular road all that time. Now, a piece of property is for sale on this said road that seems to be a fit for our family. We've put our own cottage up for sale - and we wait. That's the hard part.

  29. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the news will be good!

  30. What a beautiful place. Like living in a storybook. I'm sure you and your village will be together soon!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ahhh, that IS a beautiful place! I can't wait to see what God has in store for you!

    P.S.
    Is it real??? It looks like a postcard or the little ceramic town I put out at Christmas!
