Do you ever feel like everything is not going as planned?

There are also times when you just don’t know where to get your strength and how you can get back on your feet.

Close friends Holly Harper and Herrin Hopper had each other’s back when they both got a divorce at the same time. Herrin even lost her dad last 2020.

They both felt they were at the end of the road, but they never thought of giving up. After all, they were parents.

Then an idea came to Holly. She thought that maybe it was possible for the two of them to live together.

“Holly and I said, ‘Why not do this?’” Herrin said in her interview with TODAY. “Within a weekend, we found this house.”

In June 2020, they closed the deal! They found an amazing home, and they got to live together.

How awesome is that?

Now, they still needed to find two other single moms to join. They posted in a neighborhood group, and soon Leandra Nichola answered their ad.

As a single mother, Leandra wanted to find a stable home for herself and her kids. The ad that she saw was perfect for them.

Aside from the cheaper cost, she loved the fact that she will have a “support” system.

For a single mother, being the breadwinner and taking care of kids can be too much.

Being with fellow single moms is like having someone who can relate, someone who can help, and basically, the support that a woman needs.

After a few months, Jen Jacobs, a friend of Holly and Herrin, also moved in.

Many asked about their setup, and Herrin explained that it’s a four-unit building.

Can you imagine what it’s like inside their home?

It sure is fun as their kids treat each other like cousins, and whenever someone needs to run an errand, someone else can help her with the kids.

Of course, there should also be rules and meetings, which they do every month.

They discuss the bills, rules, and everything concerning their happy home.

Holly even joked about how amazing it is to live with women. Because in their home, they just get each other.

The four women called their home the “Siren House.” They named it after the mythical creatures that would sing a lovely song and would lure sailors to their deaths.

They loved the vibe of the beautiful siren, just not the luring of men to their death kind of stuff.

Then, Herrin and Holly told in their interview that something unexpected happened.

Leandra and Jean fell in love with each other and are now together.

Isn’t that adorable?

All four women are proud of what they have become and are pursuing their dreams.

Leandra now owns a cafe nearby.

Imagine having genuine friends who become, not just your housemates, but also a sister, a support system that will never let you down.

That’s how it is for these four amazing women, and this is exactly what they want to share.
