Movin' on up!

Well, I guess it's about time that I spread the news via blog...


We bought a house!

We are positively beside ourselves with excitement about this gigantic piece of news. (If you follow via Instagram, Twitter, or my personal Facebook, you obvi already know... but still!)

This has been in the works for a long time - I'm talking since the end of April. Every cryptic post (...we had a busy weekend), every odd tweet (...so stressed!), has probably been related to the home-buying process. It has consumed our lives. It has consumed our time. It has created stress. It has caused arguments. It has caused happy dances. It has involved a lot of thinking, and number-crunching, and driving, and contemplating, and sleepless nights.

It has been one hell of a ride. But, in the end, it has been so incredibly worth it. We bought our "forever home." Not a home that we HAVE to live in forever, but a home we can see ourselves living in forever. The chips fell right on this one. We lucked out. And we are thrilled.


We are 10 days into the gigantic house-buying adventure. We are knee-deep in boxes. We are trying to remember where we put the plates and the silverware. But we are happy. We are home.

Your house is SO beautiful! I'm drooling! We bought our house a few months ago (while I was still planning our wedding...yes, I'm crazy) so I can definitely sympathize with how stressful the process is. Congrats!
