Home Sweet Home????

Well, we made an offer on this house... and to make a long story short, both parties have agreed to a very acceptable figure...and barring some hidden monstrosity showing up on the inspection, this house will most likely be ours later this month. Whoa. We are over the moon. Thanks be to God.

This second picture of us on the doorstep was taken moments after hearing that the house was ours.

We've had our eye on this house for months and then last week I thought it was lost...but it had just changed hands to a different realtor's listing. There are a few things we want to change but nothing that we couldn't live with for a while. It's on a sloping piece of land and there is a creek running at the bottom of the back yard. It's in a well established neighborhood- in other words, there are trees grown up and a general feeling of seclusion from our neighbors, who aren't too close. There are plenty of other exciting details I could mention about the property, as well as the whole Nate and Penny factor ( which I will let Penny tell about on her blog) but I'll leave it at this for now. We are rejoicing in God's faithfulness and abundant provision.

PACK YOUR BAGS TO COME VISIT US SOON! We have room for everyone we know to come visit us simultaneously and witness the majesty of our awesome new firepit in the backyard.
