A New Home: Coming Soon

Loads of changes are in our future right now and it's exciting. After being on the market for 3 months, we accepted an offer on our current home so the next step was to find a new home in Olathe immediately.

Nick and I made 2 trips. The first trip resulted in an offer on a home that was beat out by another buyer's offer (we liked the house, didn't love the house), and the second trip resulted in an offer that was accepted immediately despite a competing offer! And we love this house. So looking back, it was a blessing in disguise that we didn't get the first house.  I'm now a firm believer that things do happen for a reason.

Nick and I have been married for 3 years and so far we've had just as many homes together. Ugh! I'm hoping that this next move will be our last for many years. Moving 2 people is one thing, but moving 4 is a whole new ball game.

February 2011-???

EC is terribly excited about the new house and likes to look at the pictures I took. He says it's in "Kansas City" and he wants to know if he'll have new friends there. It makes me sad to know that he'll never really remember his current home, the home we brought 2 newborns into, but I know we'll make a million more memories in our new house!
