Sequined Bikini: Not Sure The Neighbors Would Approve
I closed a sale on a home that was on the lake. It was gorgeous – right location, beautiful spot. Honestly, I thought we would be there forever. We only lasted a year.
Every single day people came by the house in boats and took pictures. Pictures of neighbors homes, our home. Some days they trickled by, sometimes in droves. Eventually I threatened to buy a patriotic sequined bikini and run out and wave the flag for them. Ta-da!!
(I could have gone viral!)
Let’s just say it got old real quickly! (Karl wanted Texas flag boxers and was going to join me!)
Oh my gosh, I will not miss that!! It isn’t that we or our neighbors’ are anyone “special;” the homes are just spectacular. I realized I just wanted to pick my tomatoes in peace or sit in the sun without tourists going by.
Now it’s just the deer and the fawns. The hummingbirds and the cardinals. The geckos and the lizards.
And three white dogs and two growing girls.
Oh…and Karl and me…and only the faintest wish I’d bought that sequined bikini.
