After months of searching, and two failed attempts at the contract-signing stage, we've reached a mutually agreeable price on a house! It's been a stressful process, and I can't help but be a little nervous that something else might go wrong, but I am just so excited!
We really wanted a big yard, for Dozie to be able to run around and play in. We both fell in love with this 12,000 sqft lot! It backs up to a quiet park with a walking trail, so there are no neighbors behind us. Of course, the landscaping needs some work: we've got to get some trees planted, and Dozie's petitioning for a squirrel-feeder...
Hopefully everything will be smooth-sailing from here on out - our closing date should be mid-March. Just in time for us to move out of our apartment before the lease ends.
It's going to be a busy month! And then we're getting married in April! Woohoo :)
