Here is my new house! (Well, almost my new house. Our offer has been accepted, and if the inspection goes well--there we are!) Isn't it lovely? And huge? I feel like my expectations were exceeded so incredibly that I'm being greedy. It is certainly an embarrassment of riches to have a four (4!!) bedroom house with two-and-a-half (2-1/2!!!!) bathrooms all to my own little family, especially considering this home has FOUR times the square footage of my current apartment.
Here is my entryway. (Why is this underlined? I don't know.)
Here is my dining room. (I guess, technically, all these rooms belong to both John and I. However, "my" carries my enthusiasm a little further.)
Here is the master bath. (Master bath!!) It has a shower--a shower that I will only have to share with John. And I won't have to move any tub toys. I'm so excited!
Here is the basement. It is currently decorated to reflect the owner's rabid interest in Notre Dame football. I have nothing against this, but it will probably look differently when I am done. For one, I have only one couch and one table, and there are other rooms that will take priority in the distribution of those rare and valuable pieces of furniture.
I love the house. I love the neighborhood. It is only 3/4 of a mile from Olivia's elementary school (which is a fabulous school with HALF-DAY kindergarten), and our house is right on the edge of the neighborhood before all the houses get ENORMOUS. So, I don't think our property values will go down. I am so happy and so incredibly blessed. Can you hear my sigh of contentment from clear over there?
