Well, technically it's more of a lake cabin. So exciting! Jeff's over the moon—he says he's wanted to own a cabin and a lake house his entire life, and now he has both. I'm pretty stoked too, but I'm a little daunted by the fact that it is, after all, a huge PROJECT. The crazy part is, even though we bought it months ago, I saw it for the first time just two weeks ago. Jeff wanted to fix it up before I visited—he's all too aware of my propensity to freak out when I see the "before" state of some of the properties he buys. You see, he has the vision. I, unfortunately, do not. I see a bunch of sticks and bricks in shambles and want to run the other direction. That, my friends, is why he's Mr. Renovator dude and I am not.
Anyway, back to the lake house/cabin. I love it. It's rustic and quaint and sits on 2 1/2 acres on Lake Oconee. It's tucked away, deep into the lot, so it's very private and quiet. I'm still getting to know the place, but I know we'll be making many memories there.
Voila. Don't worry—the frilly white curtains are GONE. Gone, I tell you.

Vivi counting on the steps...clearly, she's a big fan of the numbers seven and eight. I'm proud to say the little genius is counting to ten now.
