We ran a few fun errands like picking up peaches at a local farmers stand, hitting up a thrift store, and then day dreaming about our new house. This awesome news is only a partial excuse for my absence online. The other part is laziness. Sewing hasn't ceased but taking the time to photograph and write about it has.
But let's not dwell on that. Let's talk about the new house! We are first time home buyers and I can't tell you how exciting this whole process has been. We've been saving for what seems like forever and started to look this spring online. The worst/best part about waiting and saving is that we got to spend a lot of time deciding what we liked and didn't like. So we were quick to say no to many properties that came on the market. But time was on our side and patience paid off. We ended up getting many of the priority items on our wish list. Newer home in the country with land surrounded by farms. And its less than 10 minutes from Jeff's work. Amazing!
Hopefully, this will be the last time we move for a very long time. I am so ready to plant roots.
We take possession in 9 days. Our actual moving date is 2 weeks later. Between Labor Day and out of state work trips it works out better that way. We have our rental til the end of Sept so there is really no rush. I can clean the new house before we move in, get settled, then have time to clean our rental. :)
