It’s Under Contract!

13 Nov

I’ve got some big news!

We have a house!!! Remember my post about home-hunting? Well, we officially have a place to live! As we drove past it the other day, it all became real when we saw this sign…

After much discussion, the fiance’s parents have decided to purchase a house in Athens for us to rent! They eventually would love to retire in Athens, so this is a great option. Also, they will be able to rent to others after we move away (which I highly doubt I’m going to want to move away from this house):

It’s a beauty! Now, all I can do is think about all the lovely ways I will fill the rooms! I simply just can’t wait!!!

What was your first home like? Any suggestions about how to make it “ours”?

    Woohoo! I’m so happy for you! The biggest step in making our house feel like home was painting the walls in the living room–the original color was something I just never would have chosen for myself. I recommend finding something that’s relatively cheap and easy to put your own stamp on the place! Good luck!

      That’s a great suggestion! I think we will definitely be doing some painting. We registered at Home Depot yesterday and registered for some painting supplies to make our house a “home”! Thanks, Charlotte!
