Today I want to talk about the survey results and some news I have been waiting to share until now. There is never a dull moment in this household. We purchased a home in the Paso Wine Country in December. The former owners are renting it back from us so we will not be physically moving until April or May. Let’s chat about this post “Join me on a New Adventure and Survey Results.
We have been looking for a home in the Paso area for several years. We almost bought a lot very near this home four or five years ago. My husband is a contractor (nearing retirement) and was not interested in the stress of running a project from the ground up, or the care of an older home. I was hoping for a fixer upper in town but he wasn’t loving that idea. Several years passed and nothing materialized. In the meantime we decided to sell both our lake home and our Chualar home. Fast forward, we moved into one of our rentals and fixed it up. We have actually enjoyed living in town but missed the warmer weather, gardens, and a little more space.
Here is a sneak peek of our future digs. I love the entrance to the house. You enter via a small breezeway.
To a beautiful courtyard with an outdoor fireplace and lots of entertaining space. I am going to have a lot of fun with this space. The house is only five years old and in excellent shape.
The gardens are mature and well cared for.
It has a lovely pool for Summer and Beau.
I will share more once we move. The former owners have a beautiful art collection so the walls are all white. I think our furniture will work beautifully in the space. There is very little that will need to be changed ( a few things) but nothing that needs to be done right away. The property is quite a bit smaller than that of our former house and is about 1,000 sq feet smaller. It has an open floor plan which I am excited about.(according to the trends on it’s way out). I have never had one and think it will suit our lifestyle. The entire living area opens out to the pool and outdoor living area. Sooo..the crazy Hattersley’s are at it again. Stay tuned!!
Now on to the survey results. If you missed it you can read about THE CHD POSTS FROM 2021 THAT YOU FOUND MOST INTERESTING here. You overwhelmingly requested a wrap up weekly post. I am working on that and hope to have it rolled out by the end of the month. That way if you don’t have time to read a post, you can always catch up on Monday.

What pleased me most this year is that fashion and design were nearly split right down the middle.
