Our New Home

As some of you already know- we have big news in the form of a new house! I'm still a little shocked myself since it happened so fast. Stephen is in real estate and we are constantly bouncing emails back and forth on homes in the area- what we like, what we want 10 years from now, etc. We had only slightly, slightly began to explore the idea of starting to scout around for a bigger house. Not for extra bedroom purposes {in case anyone is wondering!} but just because we felt like we were in tight quarters in our home. We love our home, but we really needed a little more space. 

Once I saw our new house, I fell in love. I mean, hard. It has a water view {gasp! something I never thought we would have!}, a traditional floor plan {my favorite}, a large yard with plenty of mature landscaping {major}, and plenty of character. We took one look and suddenly we were head first in the real estate game, looking to buy and looking to sell. Things have lined up rather perfectly as well, so I'm getting the feeling that it was simply meant to be. It's crazy to think this house has been in our future all along...God knew exactly what he was doing! Our offer was accepted after a little back and forth, and then after putting our house on the market the next week- it sold in 9 days. So things are going to be changing a lot around here! While I love the bones of the house, it has plenty- and I mean plenty- of upgrading to do. I will give a more detailed recap soon. I am wondering if you would like to see a full tour or work on it room by room? Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments. And keep in mind, there ain't much inside right now but some blue carpet and 70's bead board! Thank you for all of your sweet comments on instagram (@missdixie30) yesterday. 
We feel so blessed for this new home for our family.
