I've been wanting to come back to this space, to write down life like I use to, but I felt like I had to play catch up before I could start again. And there is a lot to catch up! So this space has languished, until I finally decided enough! I'm going to start where I am - today.
So today we are smack dab in the middle of a move!
When we bought our house a little over 7 years ago, we swore this was it. We would never move again. Well, you know what they say - never say never! In the beginning of July, we decided to put our house on the market and it sold on our first open house. Houses right now are selling like hotcakes, some only on the market for hours before being snatched up! It's madness! And that's the madness we entered looking for our new home. We viewed over 20 homes, put in offers for three and lost all three! The searching continued and we finally found "the one" and our offer was accepted. We were too excited, but then reality slowly crept in. We were really moving! Leaving our first home and all it's memories.
There are so many emotions. Excitement, uncertainty, wondering if we did the right thing. We walk around our house now, filled with boxes and messes and mutter we can't believe we're moving. Its bittersweet.
If all goes according to plan we close next week on August 29th. We still have tons of packing to do, and moments of what in the world have we done, but I feel once we move and get settled, we will be happy we embarked on this new journey.
"and suddenly you just know it's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings."
