Phew!! This has been a loooooong couple of weeks. We got our house contract signed and to the lawyers office...we lost a house due to the sellers bank not moving very quickly on their short sale (would not recommend getting involved in a transaction like that unless you have a lot of time to wait-which we did not), we made another record fast trip to Michigan this weekend to buy a house (or else!) and we did just that! Here she is! We are very happy with her. Especially my husband. This is our first brand new home. I am really looking forward to making her just our style and making her our home. We close on our old home on November 25th-the day before Thanksgiving. And we close on our new home on November 30th. We will stay with my family for Thanksgiving and a few days after. It is amazing how much finding a home can lift ones spirits. :) God provided a lovely home for us and for that....we are very very thankful!!
