We are finally moving!
So, here’s the story: we put an offer in on a home almost a year ago and after 10 long months of back and forth the banks didn’t approve the sale. We truly thought that house was “the one,” and waited with baited breath for those 10 long grueling months. A few days prior to receiving the news that the deal was over, dead, finished, my Dad (a realtor, and an amazing one at that – this man knows his stuff) introduced us to his neighbors who were going to be putting their house on the market as a short sale (which is very normal here in AZ). The night before he listed their home we got to go see it and we had our offer ready to go right away. They quickly had back up offers right after ours and we are so incredibly thankful that they accepted our first offer. That was just 2 months ago, and we are closing in 4 days! And, it’s exactly 5 doors down from my parents and two blocks from my brother and his wife. God is sooooo good. He had this whole thing planned beyond what we thought was possible. His plan is always better than ours.
I hope you’ll join me on the blog as we pack up this place and make the new house on 22nd Lane our home. We will be taking all of our built-in furniture and I have a lot of painting to do – furniture, walls, cabinets, etc. We will have a whole new look to go along with our fresh start – I’m dreaming of cream furniture with touches of black; natural elements with topiaries and artwork, and I would LOVE some Windsor chairs in the kitchen. If you see any on CL please send them my way They don’t have to be in good shape as I can take care of that. I will also be changing the kitchen cabinets to cream and we’re thinking of adding some brick in there..we’ll just wait and see. I just need to get in there and then the design will all come together better in my head.
So….Stories of a-NOTHER house is on! Can’t wait to keep you up to date on our projects. It’ll be fun.
