Sucker for the Center Hall Colonial

Sucker for the Center Hall Colonial

“Forget the apartment; all I want in life is a colonial style house.”  I read that on Pinterest today and laughed out loud. It’s a funny and bold comment, but wow did it also really resonate with me. I swear I can’t get the Center Hall Colonial out of my mind!

My husband and I have started looking to move outside of the city (growing family = growing space needs!), and I already know what I want. It looks something like this:

Of course, given our budget, most of the houses I’ve seen in the ‘burbs actually look more like this:

*sigh* what’s a girl to do?  Well, it can’t hurt to dream…

Gee, looking at this collection of houses I’ve brought together, seems like there’s a pretty strong theme here.  Can you say WHITE HOUSE and BLACK SHUTTERS?  Funny how we always go back to the same elements again and again.  That must explain why I also have thirteen lipglosses that are basically ALL the same shade.  Once you like something, it’s hard to shake! 


Now, all I have to do is find that Center Hall Colonial (or something like it?) with our name on it.
