I have exciting news! So exciting that I'm taking the blog out of hibernation.
We bought a house!
Crazy, right? HB and I started seriously looking at houses last fall while we were both finishing grad school. We found one in the spring that we thought was "the one," but that didn't work out. The first house was a short sale and after several weeks we were feeling a bit too impatient so we started looking again. In July, we found this house and made an offer.
The attorneys did their thing, the inspectors did their thing, and then progress came screeching to a halt. The house is lovely and old, but there were a few issues preventing the town from giving the house a green light for us to live in it. It took a few weeks to negotiate with the sellers and figure out how to resolve the issues. Then it took a few more weeks for the work to get finished, but finally...
We closed! We spent 17 WEEKS buying this house, but now it's ours to decorate and update. So guess what I'll be blogging about for a bit?
Please wish HB and I luck and patience. This is our first place and the house has already taught us a thing or two.
