This past Tuesday we closed on our first home! Yup, we made the big leap, while standing on the doorstep of welcoming our second little boy, and purchased a new-to-us home!
We spent the last year and a half (yes, you read that correctly) looking at houses but were never able to find “the one.” When January came we said “till the last week of March” – if we didn’t find anything by then, we were waiting until the fall. Low and behold, on March 28 we submitted our offer in a multi-bid situation and it was accepted.
We’ve spent the past few weeks packing as much as we could where we’re currently living, and well knowing that once the baby arrives I will be of no help at all – which is quite possibly driving me more insane than getting ready to give birth.
We are so excited for this to be our family’s home and to finally be able to make things “ours” where we are living. The neighborhood is fantastic and we have a yard! Murry and Theo are going to be in heaven and the back deck is amazing. It’s everything we’ve been looking so long to find and standing on the front porch, it already feels like home. I can’t wait to see all the memories that we make raising our boys in this home.
Ok, I’m going to go look at paint colors and pin 1,000 decorating ideas.
