Countdown to Home Ownership


Finally, some good news. Our closing date has been moved up. We will officially own our farmhouse on Monday, April 26th! Maybe I can squeeze in a few projects before we move in on the 30th.

It's surreal. I can hardly believe that it's almost here. After 6 months, we are going to own our own home.

It's going to be so gorgeous once you get your hands on it! I love it enough already, but I'm sure it will look even better once you start decorating.

Congratulations! I can't believe how much you both have accomplished at such a young age!

What a dream come true.

One of the worst parts about our being in the military, is not being able to settle down and call somewhere home :(

BUT, its so nice that I get to follow along with your house buying and home making adventure. Please, don't spare any details :)
