living simply

life is sweeter when it is simple

under contract

in the last 3 1/2 months, we have sold our house, moved in with my parents, celebrated a 1st birthday and daniel’s birthday as well as 5 holidays.  oh, and then there was this:

we found out we were pregnant the same day we got an offer on our house.  could that be a sign?  we decided it was.  we had to spend a lot of our savings to get out of our house (thanks, recession).  which meant that moving in with my parents, for however many months, was necessary in order to save as much money as possible in the shortest amount of time.  it has been trying, to say the least, both for us and my parents.  so we were thrilled when our offer was accepted two weeks ago on a beautiful home with the perfect location and just the right amount of acreage.

so right now, we are under contract.  scary.  the home needs work, but nothing is horrible.  it was built in 1993 and it seems very little has been updated since then.  so we are excited to spend the next infinite years putting our stamp on the place and truly making it our dream home.  i have already started several mood boards for different rooms and am excited to share my renovation journey here.
