Life

the new digs

We just had our home inspection (and got the all clear!)… so I’m beginning to believe that this is all really happening and the place will be ours (in less than 2 months now!!). We bought the house a week ago sunday and in one week (one showing to be exact), had sold our current house! It’s hard to believe everything has happened so fast and so smoothly, but I sure am thankful!

It’s a 4 bedroom home on 1.3 acres in Melbourne Ontario.

Snapped a few (million) pics while there again today…

more front yard (other side) and home with horses across the street. The owner mentioned they may or may not LOVE the idea of a neighbour who could take care of the horses if they ever needed to be away. Currently feeling pretty thankful for my time working at Twin Streams Equestrian Centre and boarding 2 horses at our old farm!

    drove by for a little look-see yesterday…looks downright friendly! great location, too. close to mt.brydges, AND strath…glad you posted some inside shots–very nicely appointed!
    SO happy for you guys!! even happier for the neighbourhood now that there’s a brave, machete-wielding patriarch on the GOOD guys’ side!

    Christa! It looks fantastic! I’m thrilled to bits for you!

    You do a much nicer job with photos (like WAY nicer)! πŸ™‚ Absolutely gorgeous house!! I’m SO happy for you guys!! What an exciting time for you all! πŸ™‚ The kids must be thrilled! And how quickly you sold your house! What an awesome answer to prayer! God is SO good! πŸ™‚
    That backyard…the kids are going to love that! They won’t know what to do with all that space! That’s one big reason I’m hesitant to move into the city…we’ll lose our awesome big backyard! Don’t get them like that in the city! πŸ™
    Enjoy every moment!
