housing update #2
it was a long time coming, but i think... we have found... OUR HOUSE!!
it is perfect for our little fam-bam. just under 1300 square feet. two bedrooms, two bathrooms. and so, so, so, so ugly. it was built in the 70s, so everything is old and just begginggggg to be updated and refreshed. brandtly and i are happy to arrange that :)
over the last five months that we have spent (what feels like) every waking moment searching for a place to live, we had so many people ask "how is the house hunt going?". "long", we would sometimes reply, or "fruitless" or "painful". "don't worry", they would respond, "you will find the perfect house for you!" we would smile and move the conversation along. even though so many people assured us that we would find "the perfect house", i just didn't believe them. "perfect houses" are what people get when they are established in their careers, older, and have a budget about five times what we are working with. we are first-time home buyers, so i wasn't expecting anything "perfect" by any means. maybe something "nice", but we not perfection.
but all those people are right! we have found the perfect house; not because it is already tastefully furnished and stocked with the latest + greatest from west elm, but because it is ours. it is a place for brandtly, storie, and myself to love each other. that makes it perfect.
i am so excited to show you guys pictures... and more importantly, the after pictures!! we are waiting for the appraisal and then have wait for the financial side to process, and then we should close by THE END OF THE MONTH! seriously so pumped.
i hope you guys had a good week + you can find perfection in your life TODAY. not tomorrow when you can have a fresh start, not next month when you go on vacation, and not next year when you are graduated, but TODAY. find perfection just because it belongs to you and you can make it that way. i promise it is there! xo
