We are making progress! :D

I am happy to say as I write this that there is a 95% chance that we will be closing on our home at the end of this month! So that means by May 31st we could be holding the keys to our first home! I am so excited! :D God has blessed us so much in this process, we have just seen His hand in all of it. I can't go into full details now because it would take too long but we had almost lost hope of finding a good house in our price range and this house just popped up on the market. And it also has 3/4 of an acre on it that we are super excited about. It's everything that we could have ever wanted in a starter home and more. I am so, so thankful it was brought to us. 

It has been a dream of ours from the time we married to have a little place like this in the country (it's just outside the city limits, about 20 minutes or so depending on traffic) so that we could garden and spend more time outside. I am excited about having a dishwasher for the first time since we've been married! and a working stove lol! 

Not only all of this but I will be close to my cousin, she literally lives 5 minutes up the road! Did I mention I was excited? lol :D 

It is going to be bittersweet leaving this house because it's my grandmother's home, and she is very ill now, and we had our first little baby here. So, lots of memories. Unfortunately it will more than likely have to be sold soon :-/ but I am ready to take the next step in our life. 

We are heading to my hometown tomorrow to spend the night with family and have a small party for S's first birthday. I can't believe that a year has gone by already! she's so big now! I want to be more diligent on recording memories with her so that's why I've been toying with my mommy blog lately too. I hope its perfect weather this weekend because its been a while since I've seen my family.

Hope everyone has a great Friday!
