Life Update

We are MOVING!!!

Life around here since returning from Maine has been cra-ZY.

And these 3 have been troopers. 
And yes I say 3, because Tally has gone everywhere with us while our current house has been prepped, shown, and inspected.

He hasn't hated it.

To give you a quick reference, here's the general timeline of events from the last 6 weeks:

Things to note:
Over the last 2-3 years, Matt and I have looked at and even toured a number of homes. It's kind of been an odd hobby of ours. We love looking at homes and having a feel for the market, and though we felt like our house was all we needed for right now, we also knew it was JUST what we needed for right now and the idea of future kids would have us searching for a new place to land before long. With that in mind, we hoped to find a house we loved and move for that reason, rather than feel like we literally could not fit in our current house anymore and have to search for a place to go.

Over the past year, we had narrowed our search to two locations- Chastain Park- the area we always walk/play that is very close to our current home, and downtown Roswell- a location about 25 minutes outside of the city but still close to interstates and close to Matt's office.

The house we are purchasing is the third home we have looked at in this neighborhood. We toured one a little over a year ago, another one weeks before Natalie was born, and then this one.

When the one we are purchasing went on the market, we were extra ecstatic for three big reasons:
1- It's on a cul-da-sac
2- It has a great backyard
3- It has a POOL!

Other things we love about it are the growing room we'll have for our family, the big open kitchen, and the outdoor spaces for eating, entertaining, and playing.

Side note and memory I don't want to forget- when we walked through the house for the first time, I asked Ryan if he wanted to go see the kitchen with me, and when we walked in, he looked around and without any prompting on what he thought about it said, 
"Oh, it's beautiful in here."

Buddy! Just turned 2 days earlier and already a boy after my own heart having an appreciation for a great kitchen. ;)

And since this will be my favorite space, and I will be spending LOTS of time in here, and because I can't write a post about our soon-to-be house without giving something for you to see from it, here is a peek at the kitchen and the deck off of the kitchen:


We cannot WAIT to make this house our home!
