So… We bought a house!

Gosh, I have been about to burst over this! I’m a TERRIBLE secret keeper (of my own secrets, not of other people’s) so this has been crazy hard for me to keep quiet.

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!!!!

(I know. I gave it away in the title. Oh, well.)

It’s just a little ranch house, not too far from where we are now. However, it feels down right PALATIAL compared to our apartment. We spent most of yesterday moving after a busy weekend and are finishing up today. Right now, it seems a little empty, but it won’t be long before we fill it up. It doesn’t need too much work, just a lot of paint and some new lighting. And rugs and new landscaping and reupholstered furniture. I have big plans for this little lady. (Yes, this house is a girl.) But, all of that will come with time.

Right now, we’re just excited about a place to call ours.

This was after the final inspection last week. We closed on Tuesday, which was exactly one year after we got our marriage license.

Ryan, we’ve come a long way, baby. And we still have a long way to go. There’s no one I’d rather walk this road with than you.

Full story and house tour to come. :)
