Buying a Home, Home Ownership, Our Home

Aaaaand…We’re Officially Homeowners!

Well, it’s official—as of this afternoon, we legitimately are the actual and legal owners of something other than a car.

It will still be a couple weeks before we actually move everything in, but we’re pretty darn excited (in case you couldn’t tell!).

The main reason why we’re not moving in right away is that we want/need to change some of the paint choices, starting with the front door (which was painted using interior paint and therefore bubbled upon coming into contact with direct sunlight, as you can see below). The house also has some unfortunate choices for accent wall colors on the inside that I just didn’t want to live with, so we’re taking a weekend to paint and will start leisurely moving things in bit by bit.

Although we’re sad to say goodbye to the good people and the good neighborhood we’re leaving behind, we are eager to see what this new chapter in our lives brings us.

(Stay tuned for plenty of in-progress and eventual before/after pics in the coming weeks!)

(This is the best selfie we got of the three of us…
and you can barely even see the house in the background. Oh well.)
Now we just need to hope that all this excess excitement carries over into excess packing and painting energy…
Hey, I can dream, right?
