When I was born in Grand Junction, Colorado my parents lived in a suburb called “The Palisades”.
When I was 16 years old, we moved to a house in a subdivision of Gunnison, Colorado called “The Palisades”.
The new house we are building is in a subdivision called “The Palisades”.
Is it fate? Is it a coincidence? Is there a higher power at work? No telling — but I will say that when we went to look at the models for the house we were thinking about and it was in The Palisades, I immediately felt at home! Maybe it’s genetic or maybe it’s just that the sound of the name was soothing. Don’t know — but I love the fact that I am going home by building my new house. I’m sure my mother is in heaven laughing at the craziness of it all!
As I told my husband as we entered the subdivision — I think the house was pretty much a done deal when I saw the “Palisades” sign at the entrance — I definitely think it was an omen. The only thing which would have sealed the deal right away is if the street name had matched either the name of one of my children or my sisters or my mother or any other numerous things in my life — but really — how many signs does a person need to know that something was meant to be!
