Williamsburg Houses

What I really love about houses is that they are beautiful in the same way people are.  Their beauty is in their uniqueness.
You can never go home again, but the truth is you can never leave home, so it's all right.  ~Maya Angelou
Home is a place not only of strong affections, but of entire unreserve; it is life's undress rehearsal, its backroom, its dressing room.  ~Harriet Beecher Stowe
This quote shares the same sentiments that I felt while looking at these homes:
Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other.  It is the place of confidence.  It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defense, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts.  It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule.  ~Frederick W. Robertson
Home is not where you live, but where they understand you.  Christian Morganstern

My favorite house of all yesterday was this next one.  As soon as I saw it, I's a Lemoney Snickett kind of a house.  And because we've been married awhile, and more importantly because we read the entire A Series of Unfortunate Events series as a family...Nathan knew exactly what I meant.
Living the life in Virginia!

very nice series. We enjoy walking around residential neighborhoods in different cities. It's fun to imagine what it owuld be like to live there! Not too many neighborhoods compare with this one where you are now though.
