I just got back from a wonderful weekend in Cambridge, Ohio. It was my aunt's 80th birthday and it was a great reason for all of the cousins to get together and take a walk down memory lane.
Sunday we had the amazing opportunity to spend the day at one of the most beautiful residences I've ever been to Creekwood. Nestled on 6 acres, there is a summer home complete with a wrap around porch over-looking the swimming pond, a winter home with a library and reading loft that I never wanted to leave, and some of the nicest hosts I've ever had the chance to meet and get to know. Andrew had spent over 40 years renovating the property and collecting the artwork and items that made the house so special. Each treasure had a story behind it as did the homes.
Andrew has decided to sell the property because he's ready to tackle a new project, and when I visited he asked what I would change to help it sell. Most stagers would tell him to take out all of the personal items, but to me that would turn this gem into just a house and would remove the pride and character that makes this a home. The only thing I would change is moving my suitcase into to one of the spare bedrooms - I hated to leave.
