A Major Milestone

Today was a big, weird day. Brad and I actually became homeowners. Can you believe it? Because I can’t.

Glitter and Goat Cheese - New House

We’ve been under contract since the end of July, so as you can imagine, this has been a long road. In fact, it took us so long to close that once it finally happened, it was almost anticlimactic. After we left the closing attorney’s office with our new set of keys, we immediately headed to the house to meet the locksmith and security company, then waited for hours while they made our new home safe. As the time passed, I found myself thinking about all the things we had to do, and I started to feel a little anxious.

But later that evening, we went to pick up our dog so she could inspect the premises. She ran straight outside to the fenced yard and literally galloped across the grass with that big, happy, tongue-out look on her face, and I knew immediately that it had all been worth it. She loves the new house (she sniffed every square inch to make sure), and so do we!

Get ready for this blog to fill up with tons of home projects and renovations! We’ll be testing out paint colors this week. In the meantime, I can’t wait to share pictures of the house and our plans for changing tons of things. Stick around!
