Jeremy and I are so excited to announce that we are now HOMEOWNERS!!!
I’m not sure the reality of this big step has really hit us just yet. We had a celebratory dinner and a mini dance party with Rosie upon returning home. Now, Jeremy is strumming nothing but upbeat songs (usually he opts for sadder tunes) on the guitar while she listens… in our very own living room. So weird!
We are so very thankful to have worked with such a great group of people through the whole process. We couldn’t have asked for better landlords/sellers over the course of the past year. They let us “test run” the house for an entire year, until we were ready to buy, and worked hard on getting things in order with us for the past several months. The real estate agent and loan officer involved were also incredibly helpful, thorough, and genuinely caring and we’d be happy to recommend them to you if you’re in our area and interested in starting the first-time (or second, or third) home buying process anytime soon!
Seriously, we’re feeling all kinds of emotions right now. Mostly excitement, but also a wee bit of umm, what, should we be feeling way more grown up and mature now?
We just thought we’d share as we’ve been hinting at this since the launch of Beard + Bloom and, well, now we can check that off as “complete!”
So… let the house projects begin! Anyone down for a painting party?
