Guess What?!?! We Sold Our House!

I KNOW!!!! You are free to freak out now, I sure am!

I've been dying to let out this secret for a while but wanted to wait until everything was official so I wouldn't have to take back anything I said. As of Tuesday night, our house is sold! Craziness!

We have been toying with the idea of moving for a while but finally made the decision in August. You know, it's totally normal to make important life decisions when your life is already crazy with wedding stuff.

So we contacted our realtor, set up a date for photos and started to madly clean our house. Oh and did I mention that we were also starting up our September IUI cycle at the same time? I know, we really are crazy.

All the cleaning was worth it though because our house looked amazing for the photos. It sure does stage well and it helps to have an awesome photographer. All credit for these fabulous photos goes to Caleb Hunt.

You may be wondering why the heck we would want to leave this perfect house and if you are, you are not alone in those thoughts. We have been asked this by many many people. The plan is to find something that is cheaper and has great resale potential but needs some sweat equity put into it. We are young and ambitious and would love to build up some equity so that we can eventually get a house on a few acres that we could see ourselves growing old in. So while this house is gorgeous and has been a great place to live for the past four years, we're ready for the next adventure.

Although we sure will miss this place. We have worked so hard at making it ours and it will be hard to leave it at the end of November. I keep going back on forth between excitement and sadness.

The last few weeks have been a crazy whirlwind and I am happy that the whole selling part is now done with. I'll write up a post next week about how it all went down, but for today I will end it here.

We are excited about this new phase in our life and are feeling good about our decision. We don't have a place to move to yet (we are currently looking) but we will be staying in this area, due to Dan's business that is doing so well.

Now, I know you will all have questions, so I will do my best to answer. Ask away!!

  2. You should be proud, Jennie, very proud. You have created a wonderful home, which you have enjoyed and someone else can now enjoy, while you go on to create another dream home.

  3. Lovely photos! What do you think you will miss the most and the least about your house?

    1. Jackie, of course you would ask such a complicated question. :P

      Let's see... I will probably miss the cold room the most, since I don't think most houses actually have one. And the least would probably be the white carpet in the basement.

    2. We made a style decision to have black carpet on the stairs and landing. Mistake! I work from home doing garment alterations, so there are always bits of thread stuck to it. DD lives at home again, long hair, son's GF visits with long hair! So it's covered with hair as well!

    3. Ugh, I wonder if there is any good colour of carpet. Grey maybe?
