we bought a house

So I know I already told you guys, but in case you forgot, we bought a house!

One Sunday back in October, we went to FIVE open houses. The first house we stumbled into is now the one we rush out of every morning. We fell in love with every. little. thing. The original woodwork. The hardwood floors. The big, huge radiators. The stained glass windows. Everything. We saw it and we loved it.

We emailed our agent that night asking to see it again. And so we went and saw it again...the very next day. The day after that, we signed an offer letter. The day after that we had officially begun the closing process!

Forty-seven excruciatingly, long days later, we signed our lives away and got a huge ring of keys in return. I'm not even kidding. There must've been ten keys per door.

The first few nights were a little less than glamorous but we're homeowners!

We still love the house but as we're living in it we notice things we want to change. Like getting rid of the cable wire that was fed through the wall, across the room, through another wall into the next room...and painting over the hideous green walls in the living room.

I know it'll be a few months until we have our house warming party (read: June or July) but I couldn't wait to share our new address with our friends and family. And it served as a good excuse to make Ryan put on a nice shirt and stand still for a picture.

Isn't he just the cutest?

Anyway. Four moving boxes perfectly stacked, some photo editing, and some inventive phrasing later, we had our cute, simple post card.

I'm kinda in love with how it came out. I may or may not want to frame this in the near future.

And now that I have a house warming party deadline, I have a long list of projects that need to happen first. Who wants to help?

Until the next house update, peace out, lifers.
