Friends, I have to confess- I’ve been keeping something from you. It’s something quite dear to my heart (and something several of you have guessed, actually, because of my specific pinterest boards and my recent questions on facebook). I had to keep myself from spilling the beans multiple times over the past month, in fact.
We bought a new house!
Yep. It’s true.
I am not superstitious in the least, but I really, really love this house and I just couldn’t bring myself to introduce you to it until we’d signed all of the papers. Which happened yesterday!
In typical Kirstin-and-Adam-fashion, we are not moving in this week, or even this month. The phrase “move in ready” doesn’t have the allure to us that is has with other, normal people. We are far more intrigued by “potential” it seems. And potential she has.
So when I say, “I really, really love this house,” I mean, I really, really (REALLY) love what I envision this house becoming. Someday. After we tear down some walls and redo all of the flooring and completely gut the kitchen (and both bathrooms, but that is not even on the radar for 2012). And perhaps even add on (in a couple of different places!).
I. can’t. wait.
Get ready for an onslaught of house projects. And before-and-after pictures. And maybe a couple of lulls in our regularly scheduled programming while I’m off ripping up carpet and tiling backsplashes (as if there haven’t been enough this month already). Did I mention that I’m oh-my-goodness excited?
Any fun news you’ve been wanting to share?
