we bought a house!
We bought a house! We bought a house! We bought a house!
I'm just a little excited about it. We found the most adorable house in the coolest neighborhood for a pretty great price. We move in just a few weeks, and we are so happy because it's our very first house! Everything fell into place so perfectly with this house it's pretty tempting to think it was meant to be.
We'd been looking for a house for a few months, and we were just about to expand our search to other neighborhoods when the perfect house popped up. We found it posted in the morning, viewed it in the afternoon, put an offer down in the evening, and had our offer accepted by the time we went to bed! It was a pretty exciting day. Our love of the house grew when most of the inspections went pretty well too. Not bad for a house that's over 80 years old!
This is a photo of our adorable kitchen. We'll be keeping that amazing stove for storage, but we couldn't keep it for daily use since it didn't fit most of our bakeware (and also wasn't up to code). The rest of the house has some great character too. Original hardwood floors, unpainted baseboards (yes!), stained glass windows, and a fireplace! I can't wait to move in and start decorating and making our house a home.
Best of all, Baby T will get to celebrate his first birthday in our new house. There's something pretty special about starting to have our birthdays and holidays in a place we'll be for (hopefully) a long time.
