Welcome Baby Berlyn!

One week ago today, something incredible happened — I became a grandmother again!!

On April 16th, Berlyn J. made her entrance into the world.  And despite my eagerly awaiting her arrival for months, then weeks, and then days… she came so quick, I missed it by five minutes!

She is so beautiful, wonderfully healthy, and every bit a miracle baby!

I am so proud to be her Jannie Grannie Wannie!

A House… and Guest Cottage… and Studio — All In One!

I’m calling this my three-for-one deal!  This beautiful property is on the market for the first time ever.   Spread over two acres, it comes with a beautiful, sprawling 2-bedroom home, an over-sized garage with a studio above, and a guest cottage that can be rented out!

The main house has an open floor plan, with views from almost every room.  With a propane fireplace, all home generator, sliding doors leading to a new Trex entertainment deck, great kitchen, and lots of storage it is the perfect rambler!

The guest cottage is already designated a legal bed & breakfast.  When you’re not using it to host visiting friends and family, you can rent it out for hundreds a night!

And the views!  137 feet of waterfront grant you first row seats to breathtaking sunsets over the Olympics, boats sailing through the Saratoga Passage, soaring eagles, and even the occasional gray whale or pod of orcas.
