We did it!

It's official! We bought a HOUSE!

Yesterday closing went smoothly, we bought a bunch of stuff at Target that we probably don't need, had a celebration dinner with my parents and then sat on the floor of the house just soaking it all in for 3 and a half hours. It was wonderful!

At closing we got to meet the previous owners. We were really nervous about meeting them and we were really hoping we wouldn't have to, but I am glad we did. The previous owners were so nice and gave us the inside scoop on the neighbors, and told us all about the stuff they had done to the house and how to work things, it was great. They even gave us their phone number just in case we have any questions. They were so sweet. You could tell that they loved this house and that it was a hard thing for them to sell it to us.

Today we're going to check prices on fences, lawn mowers, and grills, and take a few of our kind of delicate things over to the house so they don't get beaten up on moving day. Then tonight we are going to paint our bedroom. And tomorrow is moving day!

It is so surreal. We have a house, that is all ours. We can change anything we want. We can finally make a home. I honestly don't know if I've ever been as happy as I am right now. Just walking into our house feels like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I know that a house is going to be a lot of work and that at some point it will become it's own weight, but for now, it's just an amazing feeling to be there. I love it.
