A few weeks ago, I mentioned big changes happening, and they have and are! My family and I have sold our home and moved our nest across town! Crazy as it sounds, it was something we always had in the back of our minds when we purchased the home we lived in for the last 5 1/2 years. We knew that home was to be temporary (isn’t every home on Earth?).
The plan was to fix it up and at the right time sell it. We’ve been looking, and waiting, praying, and watching, but also very comfortable and content. In fact, it was pretty nice having all the major projects done!
However, in the spring, a home came to our attention, but was out of our price range, so we didn’t give it much thought. But, we knew the realtor who had the listing, so we decided to go look at it. Really we didn’t think anything would come of it. We sat on it for a while. After much prayer, we gave the best offer we could, but honestly never thought the seller would accept our offer. Well, to our complete surprise he did! Even our realtor was shocked! She called the seller to make sure he knew what he was doing, which he did. Of course things then depended on the sale of our current home, so again we prayed, and watched to see what would happen. Truly, we were fine with however things worked out.
Within hours of listing our home it sold for full price!
So, this summer begins with moving “our nest” to a new spot!
Our new place needs some updating, work, beauty and love brought back in. (just what we both love to do…really!). It has great “bones” and is located in a beautiful area, on a half-acre, with space between neighbors, room for us to play piano, and sing til our heart’s content!
We feel very blessed.
I’ll be back after I unpack and can see the floor again!
