New Beginnings is Right!

I'm taking a quick break from the fairy fun for a moment. A little while ago, I had posted about our putting an offer in on a home. That offer fell through due to the sellers being unwilling to budge even a hair on anything and in fact changing the conditions of their listing! We were disappointed, but continued to look at other places in search of 'home'.


On February 1st we went to look at a house that had hit the market a few hours before we saw it. As soon as we stepped inside it hit me, this was home. I wanted to curl up and take a nap in these strangers bed, it felt familiar despite having never been there before. To sweeten the deal, it's situated on over an acre of land with a few fruit trees and a horse next door who I wished I had a treat for!

We put in our offer on the 2nd and are officially under contract today. Pending any surprises in the underwriting of the loan or the home inspection we'll be leaving apartment living behind us very soon.

Could it have come at a more perfect time? With the combination of Imbolc and the New Moon, both times of change and new beginnings I'd say it's divine, though I'd hate to jinx us.

If you would all be so lovely, keep your fingers and toes crossed for us!

  9. How awesome...I love when you're able to walk into a place and know you're supposed to be there. I felt that way about my current apartment. I knew it was ours from the first moment. I'm hoping to find a house with that vibe in the next seven months.

    May the Goddess bless you with this wonderful home! Congrats :)
