I didn't talk about it on the blog because it was a long-shot kind of thing from the start. And once we got into the process there were more ups and downs, so the whole time we were like, "It ain't over until we get the keys!" But now, with keys in hand, we're looking forward to moving in!
It was all fast and unexpected as we weren't planning on moving. We currently own a 2br/2ba and when we bought it 4 years ago we figured we could stay in it at least until a second kid was on the horizon. However, I LOVE houses and always have, even as a kid. So even though we weren't looking to move, I'm the kind of person that casually looks at real estate listings on a constant basis, and if I see something interesting I'll explore it. That's how it went down with our current place as well as with this new house. And in both cases (after figuring out if it was feasible and doable to move) it was like all of a sudden we're moving!
We're sad about leaving our current place because we love it and it's been so good to us, but it helps that the new house is a beautiful 4br/3.5ba--the house we can raise our family in. We have been filled with gratitude the past month and a half as we not only look ahead but have been looking around at what we'll soon say goodbye to.
We probably won't move until September, but we've got some busy times ahead, to say the least. Caring for a newborn, packing and moving, doing some work on the new house, and selling our current place. Don't worry though. Benson is not letting me pack or move a thing!
