Today we are going on the annual Elgin Historic House Walk with friends and family.This is our third time going on this tour, and we love it. One of the homes (the brick one pictured on the right above) is on our street. I think part of why we love this activity is because we live in a home that is old – built in 1905! (It was a part of the tour about 10 years ago).
I love to see the character and creativity put into these unique older homes, and how people have worked so hard to restore them to their brilliance. It also motivated me to get my act together and fix up parts of our aging house (pictured below)!
