A New Chapter In Our Lives

I apologize for my lack of blogging lately, but our family has been really busy the past few months, and it only promises to get busier! For the past two months our family has been house hunting. We finally found the house we absolutely loved, with the price being perfect, about a month ago. It's a three bedroom, two full bath house with over 2700 square feet of living space, and it's on 1/2 acre lot. Hello 1/4 acre garden next year!

As I said, we found the house we loved, and put our bid in April. It was quickly accepted by the seller, and the first round of inspections were done. The seller agreed to do some work on the house, that we asked for, and that took a few weeks. Then the bank seemed to just drag their feet! Oh, our credit was in order, down payment ready, and paperwork all in order, but the process just seemed to go on forever! I thank G-d that we had an AMAZING realtor, Andy Kogan, who walked us through the entire process from beginning to end. The man has the patience of a saint, bearing with my nitpicky ways as we looked at hundreds of homes. Let me tell you, if you need a great realtor in Kansas or Missouri, look up Andy Kogan. You won't be disappointed! He is such a nice guy, who really goes the extra mile for his clients. Worth every penny!

Finally the day came! We were supposed to close on May 15th, but it ended up being pushed back to today. It didn't matter to me, as long as we were signing on our new home! We will be moving in June 15th, and we have some painting to do before that happens. I already have so many ideas that I've found on Pinterest that I'll be putting into place, so be watching for those posts! I will be back to my blog very soon, with tons of pictures and how-tos for you, so keep watching! I appreciate every one of my readers, commenters, and those who follow me on Pinterest. I will have much more to show you very soon!

Until Next Time,
