The American Dream

I have once again achieved the American Dream.  I closed on the house yesterday!  So after signing my life away, I am now in debt up to my eyeballs!  A true American dream!  🙂

I have been a very busy girl lately.  So please forgive my absence.  Things are progressing along.  I’m headed to the house this evening to take some measurements.  There is still a LOT to do before I move.  But I am just thrilled!

Yesterday morning, bright and early, I was at City Hall, waiting for the doors to open so I could get my water account set up with the city of Burleson.  While waiting, I had a few minutes to explore the immediate area.  The beautiful clock in the picture above is in “Old Town” Burleson, TX and immediately reminded me of my dear friend Audrey and her wonderful blog Minnesota Prairie Roots and photographs that you can find HERE.  She takes amazing pictures of small-town life and recently took a picture of an old clock similar to the one in the picture above.  Be sure to take a few minutes to visit her blog.  You won’t be disappointed!

I could have taken a picture of the stacks of boxes that I’ve packed or the over-grown lawn at the new place, but I thought you would appreciate the clock picture a lot more.  I will keep you posted as to my progress on the house as I can.

Thanks for being along for the journey!  Penny ❤

  1. Penny, congratulations on achieving the American dream of home ownership. That is just so exciting and I am happy for you.

    Secondly, thank you for the sweet words and for the link to my Minnesota Prairie Roots blog. As soon as I saw your clock photo, before I read your words, I thought of the similar clock I photographed in Farmington, Minnesota. This is a beauty, too. Thank you for sharing it with us.
