i found this house and fell in love. matt is the picky one of the two of us but i had the feeling it was the one. but no, he did not like it. days passed and i dreamt of it every night and couldn't seem to get this home out of my head. i could see my kids running through and playing in it. so i asked if we could go see it anyway. my sweet husband said yes and i knew when we got there he'd fall in love too. i could feel it, i just knew it, and i was right. he loved it.
signing the papers with our awesome realtor, judy!
my hesitance of posting is because we find out by 5 today if we get the house or not. then of course we have the 45 days of inspections, fees, fun, and closing to go through before it will actually be our home. so it could very well turn out that we do not move in but i just feel that this is our home. every part of me feels it. i knew it from the first time it popped up on my computer screen and cried when matt told me he didn't like it. i still knew it.
my babies will grow up in this house. they will play in the backyard. they will walk down the street to their elementary school and they will be super cool like their mom was and hang out at the library down around the corner for fun. i can just see them running up to me "mom, can we go to the park??" and hopping on their bikes. precious.
i'm in love with the open living room and kitchen. it's always been my dream...and those wooden floors make me want to melt. but i love that the bed rooms have carpet, there are 3 big ones upstairs along with a large space at the top of the stairs for our desk and bookshelves to reside as a library. i love the his and her master bathroom and the walk in closets in all the rooms. there are 2 full baths and a lot of storage room.
the attached garage is a tiny one, just big enough to fit our car. it has a large unfinished basement, room for growth. the backyard has two baby fruit trees, raspberry and blackberry bushes, and is beautifully fenced off all the way around. my babes will play back there. we'll build snow men together and lay out to watch the stars.
this is the one. i can feel it. and if something happens and the Lord has other plans for us, i'll just delete this post and pretend it never happened :)
update: WE GOT THE HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
