We moved! But not too far from where we were....we are only about 5 minutes from our town house. Ryan and I have been house hunting for a long time. And when I say house hunting I mean house dreaming. We bought our town house 3 years ago in October, and received an 8k first time homebuyer grant. The catch with the grant is that you can't sell or buy a new home before a 3 year timeframe, or you have to pay the 8k back.

A couple of months ago, we were looking online and we found THE house. It was perfect for our family. It had 5 bedrooms, a large basement, a fenced in yard with a patio, and a kitchen that is exactly what I love! The paint colors were even perfect! We loved it. But we were sure that it would be gone before we would have a chance to make an offer on it.

Just for fun, I decided to give the realtor a call. It turned out that the home was his sons home. I asked him if he would be interested in renting to us for 3 months until we could purchase in October, and he told me that would work!

We found a renter for our town home and moved in last week! Things worked out in a way that I know that this is where we are supposed to be. Here is a little peek at a few rooms in our new home:

So beautiful! It's amazing you already have the wall decor up! After switching my kids rooms around 4 months ago, my baby's wall is still bare, its sitting on a bookshelf collecting dust waiting to be hung :(
Missed having you w/ me VTing at Melonie's yesterday.
