We have been casually looking at homes since early September. In the beginning we went and saw any house that remotely interested us. This really helped us to narrow down our search after we found neighborhoods we liked and disliked. Back in October we saw a home with this exact floor plan and I REALLY wanted to make an offer, but we had no bites on our house yet. I was really sad to see it go so it was almost like fate when another house with the same floor plan came on the market when we were ready to buy! This house even has some features the other house didn't have so we're really excited. We also love the feel of the neighborhood. I'm crossing my fingers that there will be some playmates for Carson since our current neighborhood was severely lacking in kids younger than 10!
It will be SO hard to say goodbye and leave our first home forever. It's hard to believe we've been here for almost 9 years. Finding a new home that we love will definitely help, but this home holds so many memories for us!
