We closed on this house on our 2nd wedding anniversary. It was a very magical day- to be a home owner and to be celebrating a wedding anniversary. This is a picture from that night as we ate and drank champange on the floor of a house we had no furniture for. hehe I will always remember that night! (we always take a wedding anniversary photo showing how many years its been- as you can see its been 2)
Tomorrow we get the keys to our new apartment and although I am very excited, I am also having mini melt downs a couple times a day as we offically start to leave our 1st house. Moving is super stressful! There is so much to take care of- let alone change states- so now we need new drivers licenses, license plates, health insurance and car insurance etc.. we will wory about that another time though right now I want to share some before and after pictures of the house as I say goodbye to our home. We worked really hard on the house for the short time we lived here (a year and a half almost). Its fun to look back and see what we started with… Its an old farm style home, 100 yrs old to be exact. It has great character and sort of looks like a doll house to me. This picture was taken in the winter so its sort of gray but there are some really great maple trees around the property.

and then to say goodbye to my favorite room in our house… our bedroom. Its so pretty in there but i know I will make our new bedroom just as nice.
it was a nice home and we made a lot of great memories here but its time to move on to the next chapter in our life. haha kev joked with my mom the other day when she said that saying “and its going to be a big book”. We are a couple who wont settle, we follow our dreams and we move forward, never looking back, we have each other and that is all the matters.
I can’t wait to show you pics of our new apt. its pretty sweet. Its in an old mill building so it has super high ceilings and old mill wood floors and exposed duct work. Its very nice!
and remember THIS MONDAY!! teacher style files will start again. Only 4 more days!!!
