Home Sweet Home

While I'm sharing pictures of our home, and what it looked like when we first purchased it back in May of 2000, here are some that we had taken for the real estate listing. I shared these on my personal Facebook page when it first went on the market, but want to record them here on the blog too. We listed our home at the worst possible time of year - in August in the middle of fire season when our house was buried in smoke (this was the worst fire season we've ever had) - and everything has been so horribly dry and brown outside. Our photographer did the best he could to clear it up and add some blue back to the skies. Landscaping has never been something I am any good at and all our efforts went towards adding on and remodeling the house. A new garage and landscaping were next on the to-do list had we stayed in Oregon. As things continue to get greener we will probably have some new pictures taken, unless the house sells in the meantime. St. Joseph, pray for us!

This has been such a great home for our family for the past 18 1/2 years. 
If you are interested you can scroll through some of the Home Improvement posts I've shared over the years in the archives.  Here are a few to get you started: 


  1. Your home and what you have done are lovely! I was nearly in tears reading about you leaving for the last time! I came by chance tonight because I always love to see what you have done for your Little Flowers. I am sure you will be blessed abundantly in your new home! Thanks for sharing! Also, I hope I win in the raffle!😉😂

  2. Praying you can sell your home soon, Jessica. It sure is beautiful. In every room I can see the love you have put into this home.

  3. Your home is really beautiful! And what a blessing to have had your children to grow up surrounded by nature with fresh air. We live in a city in UK so could only dream of a home like you had :)

  4. Your home is beautiful. Praying St. Joseph will find the right buyer and may God bless you on this journey.
