Searching for perfection

Today was such a special day for us.
I am overjoyed that after 4 + years together and spending 1.7 of them looking for the perfect place to live we have found it.

Jeff and I bought a house.

Jeff is a realtor (a damn good one at that!) and that really came in handy when we decided we wanted to buy a house together.

We searched.  Found a few.  Not the ONE though.  Then we found it.  Last year.  But the sellers were asking too much money for us.
Fast forward a year and the house is still on the market.  Drastically reduced.  We pounced.  Bartered.  And won.

Goodbye small cottage with no air conditioning, only one bathroom and no dishwasher…

Hello we’re going to live here for a really long time home…
Our new home is almost 2.5 times larger than the cottage and I am thrilled to have that much storage space available to have some organization to our lives.  Congratulations to me and Jeff!

Sure, the house needs work.  Updating kind of work.  But the house is in move in ready condition and we intend to take our time decorating the house as we want it.
Now we have to pack up our cottage house in order to move .17 miles to our new home.  Thats right.  Our new house is only .17 miles away from the cottage.
I guess you could say we love the neighborhood.
