There are quite a few exciting things happening around here, but there is one BIG thing...we're moving :)
We've lived here for nearly 10 years, and I am guessing for about 5-6 of those we've wanted a bigger house. We outgrew this one much more quickly than we expected, but we've stayed much longer than I thought we could. It is literally bursting with our things - there is not a space in it that is not filled with stuff. Toys, books, craft supplies, photo albums, keepsakes, clothes (x6)...and you get the idea. We need more room!
Like I said, we've been looking for quite a while but have found we are pretty darn picky. There are things we need, things we want...but all of which I was likely to trade for MORE room. So, when we found a house that had the garage, off street parking, a non-busy street (right now we live on a state route - ugh!), nice sized yard AND double the living space, we were beyond excited. And even better? This was a foreclosed property, and we got it for way below it's appraised price. We are so excited & should find out in the next few days when we can close on it. It needs some work, but we are also excited about that. I love picking out paint colors, and am looking forward to new flooring, etc. I will be sure to take some before and after pictures to share.
Such an exciting new journey...
