Our family has some fun news to share.
We bought a house. Our first home.
We closed a couple of weeks ago, and there’s still a couple of more weeks to do some work before we fully move in. But we’re so in love.
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you how this came about. All I can say is that is was Divinely ordained. We weren’t really looking to buy a house. It is an absolute gift to us and we are so excited to make it our home. It has come at a time that we weren’t expecting, but it’s perfect for our family. Funny how the Lord works like that, right? It’s a dream come true.
As you can see, there’s still some touches of love that can be added to some areas. I predict that I’ll always feel that way, even after the red paint has long been covered up.
I cried at closing. We met the seller who built this house for her family when her son was the same age as ours is now. I wonder if her son begged for the sage green paint in his room like ours has been begging for light blue?
For now, I’m looking forward to ridding the house of the mustard and ketchup color scheme, the mismatched carpets, and the sun-faded shutters, and bringing in some fresh paint, faux farmhouse touches, and a home-y feeling. I can’t wait to share our progress. I look forward to many years of children, house guests, dirt and dust, comfort, coffee-drinking, and perfect imperfection. Join me?
Welcome to our home.
