what's been up (moving update + new house!)

can't find original source, but found image here
Our house is under contract. The house we live in is ....and so is the one we are buying. I'm our Realtor on both sides, so I've been swamped with negotiations, paperwork, scheduling, you name it. It's really an exciting, but scary time. We've lived in our current house for just about a year and we've loved it. A lot. We needed something newer because that's when we were just moving back to Charleston and we couldn't take on much of a project with the transition. But now, I've fixed up our house the way I wanted it and we've slapped paint on every single wall (which is all it truly needed and frankly, all we were willing to invest in it) ... and I'm now satisfied and ready for a change. 

If all goes smoothly (and I've been afraid to say this just in case I would jinx something) then we will be in the new house in less than a month! It's going to be a project, but this house is right in the heart of town and walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, my barre studio, etc. We will be doing kitchen, master bedroom, and bathroom renovations—just to name the big things. There's going to be a lot of love and sweat that will go into it, but we love this house so much (it gave us warm fuzzies, you know?) and are excited to make it our own. We're having it inspected today, so prayers please! It was built in 1944, so there's no telling. (insert anxious, scared, excited emoticon here) 

If you follow me on Pinterest, then you've probably noticed that I've been pinning some random things on the "our new home" board, so that's what that's all about. As for the actual house, I will share photos as soon as I know for sure we are closing on it. :)

Thanks for following along on our next adventure! I swear, I mention it all the time whenever something big happens, but I feel like this blog has traveled with me through so much.... college, a wedding, a move, another move back 10 months later, the purchase of our first home, a baby arriving soon, and now our second home! And I don't say it enough (I'm sorry!), but I really can't express how thankful I am for your sweet comments and emails all along the way. Thank you.
