Where the Coffee is Always On

Erin SheehanJim and I had the offer we made on a house accepted this week. It’s an exciting time for us, as I’m sure you can imagine. We’ve been renting for nearly seven years and look forward to owning our own home.

The kitchen and the neighborhood are what sold us on the house. The kitchen is big, beautiful and full of light. It has enough room to fill many canning jars and for an army of helpers. I look forward to cooking many meals there and putting up hundreds of pounds of garden produce.

The neighborhood is a walker’s paradise. We’re a block from the public library and just a few blocks more from restaurants, stores and a pharmacy. Our street is tree-lined and welcoming. Since telling friends where we’re moving, many people have responded, “I’ll be able to walk to visit you!”

My vision for our new home is one where friends and neighbors know they are always welcome to come in and sit a spell. Where the backdoor’s always open and the coffee is always on. Homemade cookies in the cookie jar and fresh baked muffins on the counter.



Our new kitchen has space for a large kitchen table. I imagine friends and neighbors sharing a cup of tea or coffee and chewing the fat. No need to call ahead, just come on in and feel at home.
