Done and done

After a week of 14+ hour days, way too much fast food, and the help of amazing family and friends we have a fence, the house is painted, the deck is stained and we are all.moved.in.
There are still a bunch of things we need/want to do (paint the exterior, new kitchen, new bathroom counters, etc…), but we are happy to call this our home. (Originally posted July 15, 2012)

It's official

Well, we are officially homeless. We closed on our house this morning. It was our first home together as a newly married couple. Both our girls were born there (well, not there, but you get what I mean). It was a good home. We made a lot of great memories there. I will miss our cul-de-sac, our neighbors, and our great backyard. I will even miss our fake grass. 
Some fantastic family offered to let us stay with them in-between selling our house and buying a new one. We are currently living in a cozy basement, which fits us perfectly. We couldn’t appreciate it more. Not one bit. It’s pretty great having such a gracious family. 
Let the house hunting begin.
