Where We Live

It dawned on me the other day that there are family and friends out there who have never seen where Joe & I live. So I'm here to fill you in! We call Wilmington, NC home. This little beach town lies in between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean on a strip of land that is only about 10 miles wide. The first picture below is a nice shot of downtown Wilmington that is situated right on the Cape Fear River. The second picture is of Wrightsville Beach which is the local beach around here.
Now onto our little love bungalow! Joe and I bought our first house two years ago and find it to be just perfect for the two of us. Here's a picture of our master bedroom and bathroom. Please note that Joe (and I...sort of) handcrafted this headboard. He's such a man's man!

Living Room.

Dining Room.

Kitchen. Joe also built our upper cabinets from scratch! He's so talented.
This is the computer/sports/guest room. When you've only got 1,000 square feet, multi-functioning is the name of the game.

And finally here's our back porch with a nice view of the 6th hole on Echo Farms Golf Course. Joe and I don't really make it out on the course too often but you meet some nice people looking for their golf ball behind your grill! Also please note the all wooden recycling bin in the back left corner. Joe built that too!
So that's our humble abode. I hope you enjoyed the tour. Ya'll come back hear.

I'm surprised you didn't take a picture of your new Dyson vacuum cleaner to show everyone what you use to clean the floors with.

Ha! Ha!
