We bought a house.
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!
We have lived in Michigan for 2 years now, and we are finally getting into a home. We thought we might be in this apartment for 6 months, maybe a year. I really wouldn't have guessed we'd live here for 2 years. And now, we're moving!
When I get thinking about all the people we've met while we've lived here, I see that we were supposed to be here. Especially when I think about our dear, sweet downstairs neighbor, Mr. Cooper. Mr. Cooper has been like a grandfather for the girls, and he's been a wonderful neighbor. If he bakes himself a pie, he gives us half of it. He won me right then and there. But he also loves sitting outside and watching the girls play. He makes sure to have a box of chocolates in his cabinet because he knows the girls like to sneak one out. He's just a good, good man. And we'll miss him. But, bonus! We're moving less than 2 miles away! So we can come back often.
But this post isn't about all that. This post is about BUYING A HOUSE! We are so beyond thrilled to be moving into a bigger place. A place with 4 bedrooms (That means a guest room, folks! Come visit us!), a basement, a 2 car garage, and glorious, glorious counter space in the kitchen. We will finally be able to unpack everything we brought with us, and everything will have a place to go. And we will get our piano back!
I'm so so SO grateful that we are finally here. It's a time for much rejoicing! And many! many! exclamation points!
