The House Hunt is…OVER!

In a wild and crazy turn of events, the house I blogged about losing a few weeks ago is now OURS. Can you believe it? We certainly can’t. Life is so unpredictable sometimes, and we are still trying to wrap our heads around the fact that we’ll be homeowners again soon. For whatever reason, whenever we buy/sell a house, it’s never easy. Kyle and I thought we’d have a straight forward  transaction this time around because we were due for some good luck. But once again, we had one heck of a time landing a contract that both parties agreed upon.When the papers are all signed, I’ll go into the details, but for now, I HAD to tell you that we have a new home.

I’ve already listed a few reasons why this place captured our hearts, so today, I’ll let the pictures do the talking…it’s oooozing with potential and I love that everything is untouched and ready for updates.

In short, I will have blog material for years. Heck, maybe even a decade. I have ants in my pants to get going on another huuuuuuge project, and I hope you guys will come along for the ride!
