The past few months have been a roller coaster of highs, lows, moments of quiet anticipation and periods of hair-on-fire PANIC. But I'm happy to report that we signed the final papers (from Mexico) to close on our new home last week.
We dubbed it the "Kitty Cat House" because the peaks in the roof and the front windows reminded us of a kitties face. We knew right away it was the perfect home for our family but we had to overcome a few hurdles (credit clean-up, competing offers, IRS delays, miscalculations) before we put pen to paper. Fortunately, the house gods smiled upon us and we made it through!
Welcome to our new home :).
And here is the location of my future craft room! I can't wait to get moved in.
As noted above, the final signing had to happen from Mexico as we weren't able to wrap everything up before we got on the plane. I would not recommend this method of closing but we were able to work it out and then celebrate with a margarita (or 7) :)!
Thanks for all of the kind words you shared in my Holding On and Letting Go a couple weeks back. Your thoughts and support helped carry us through the last legs of our home buying adventure.
I'm anxious to get caught up with all of you now that I'm back from vacation! Hope you had a great week.
