WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!

I am over the moon. We just moved into our home this weekend, and I couldn't be more ecstatic. This whole process just sort of, happened. We weren't necessarily looking to buy anytime soon, but I'm notorious for scowling the current real-estate. One of my favorite things to do, especially during busy season, is take a break from work, go get a coffee, roll down the windows and just drive. Sometimes out in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes through the city picking out my favorite houses. I saw an ad for this house and it only contained one image. The picture honestly made it seem small and boring, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to just drive by. I was happily pleased to see the photo did not do it any form of justice. When we pulled up to the house I instantly had "that feeling". You know, the one you get sometimes when things just feel right. We peeked in all the windows and fell in love with the open space and hard wood floors. After two months of a million phone calls, emails, and paper work, we're moving in and starting the process of making it feel like home.

This is our first home we've ever bought, so it's an odd, yet exciting feeling to know that we're going to be here for quite awhile. The longest we've stayed in one place is 1 1/2 years, so it's exciting to think of all the memories we're going to make here. Our lives the next few months are going to involve lots of painting, rearranging, projects, house parties, barbecues, and front porch hangs.

p.s. A thousand thank you's to all of our incredible friends for helping us move in. You guys are the best.

  20. Welcome to the world of being a home owner! There is something seriously satisfying about being able to put a picture on the wall, paint said wall if you're sick of the colour and dig the garden up as often as you want. We built a house here in Western Australia almost 12 months ago and while we're nowhere near finished what we want to do to it, its home and I adore it.

  36. That is THE most perfect house I've ever seen. I'm so jealous! We're house hunting at the moment in the UK and everything is so tiny and rubbish. You've found yourself a beautiful castle there! I've always wanted a porch like that! *sigh* maybe one day America will let me live there and I'll have a dream house like that.
    I wish you all the happiness in the world in your adorable new home

  53. My husband and I purchased our first home last year. If you need moral support for things like building closets, laying new floors, choosing curtain fabrics, that moment you realize your basement is flooding, etc., contact me!! It's terrible and wonderful all at once. Congrats and enjoy!
