It’s actually happening! We’re less than 3 weeks away from closing and I’m giddy with excitement!
After a long
2 weeks (err, it was more like 2 weekends) of house hunting, we made an offer on the perfect-for-us house… and the next thing we knew, it was ours! (Okay, it wasn’t quite that simple, but pretty darn close!) Robby commented to me just after we signed the offer, “you know, you bought a house faster than you bought your car”. And it’s true. But I knew what I wanted, and this was just too good of an opportunity to sit on for any length of time.
This house had so many things on my checklist, plus a few extras! I’ve always pictured a ranch style house as my first home; I just really love the ease and convenience of their floor plans. This one happened to sit on a very nice quarter acre lot, with mature evergreen trees in the backyard, a finished basement, attached garage, and a shed. Bonus, bonus, bonus, bonus, and bonus. I realize that we are incredibly fortunate to have found a house in such great condition, in such a short amount of time, and to have had the process go so smoothly. I count my blessings daily!
In the weeks since we’ve signed the agreement, my brain has been constantly spinning. I have so many ideas for projects, I don’t even know where to begin once we get those keys! We can’t wait to transform this house into our home.
I’m excited to finally join the blogging community after following dozens of other incredibly inspiring bloggers for so long and look forward to sharing my journey in home renovation and design with you!
