Guess what were moving.........we bought a house!!

That's right folks.....Matt and I are in the process of buying a house. This is a picture of our soon to be new house in Richardson Heights. We love it! God has blessed us beyond what we could have imagined. This house sits on a corner lot with a large gorgeous tree in the front yard. The house was built in 1955 and needs lots of renovations. Matt and I have a love for older homes and we are SO SO ready to roll up our sleeves and make this home beautiful. The homes in this neighborhood go really fast so we have been watching the streets like a hawk.....we happened upon this one on Wed. afternoon and by Wednesday night we viewed it and Thursday morning we gave an offer. The older lady took our first offer and said she wanted the "lovely" couple to have it.....too cute! We have prayed long and hard for all of this and we are so excited. We know that the Lord has wonderful plans for us and our future family in this home. We close on the house on July 24 and we be going on vacation to Cabo for a week and when return we plan on moving in.

Hi Lindsey! I tried emailing you at the address you provided, but it was sent back to me. Is there another email address I can try? If you go to my blog and click on the "Got the blog blahs" image, it will take you to my email address if you would rather just do that. I look forward to hearing from you!
