Making a home is not straight forward. Sometimes, a collection of what you have worked for, what you have been given and what you have had to compromise with, make up what kind of home you inhabit. Relationships, break-ups, divorce, children, school, work, money, all play a factors on where we live. Sometimes we have to make the best of what we have and sometimes a place you have had for a long time just gets better and better.
This is the case for my lovely neighbour. She bought her seaside abode over a decade ago and this was a wise move. They have made their home beautiful and a great family home. It is real and nothing feels staged or false. Their personalities come through. Enjoy the pics and thank you to the girl next door!
