It's a celebration

This photo was actually taken in July. I wanted to wait a bit before announcing our big news:

We're buying our first house!

We found out on July 15th that our offer was accepted. Since then, we've been waiting on paperwork, inspections, appraisals, insurance, etc. The sale will close this week and we're beyond excited!

The house is adorable. There's a wraparound porch - my dream! We'll have raspberry bushes, plum trees, and rose bushes in the back yard. The inside has a lot of possibility. It's cute, but needs a lot of updates. There is old 60s-style wood paneling throughout the main floor. There are wood floors throughout the main floor (score!) that need to be refinished. We're hoping once we pull all the old, icky carpet from the stairs and upstairs, we'll find wood floors there as well. It'll be a lot of hard work, but we're ready for it!

I'll be blogging about the updates as we go. I plan on creating a scrapbook (er, photo album? I don't really scrapbook) of all the stuff we do! Stay tuned!


  1. How exciting! Remodeling a house together is a great first step.
