New House

Alright everyone, how does everyone feel about us moving? Sad? Confused? Excited to see what we do next?!

I should make it clear that we never planned on moving. We constantly called this house our forever house and we were super happy and content with it. We're both super sad to be moving because we love our house so much and it doesn't really seem real yet. I'm sure once we start packing it'll hit us. The best part about selling our house is that it's going to a super sweet, amazing couple that said we can visit anytime (which we will everyday... just kidding!). 

Anyways, what I'm really here to do is to tell you a little bit about our new house:


It was built in 1968 which is way newer than our current house. 

It's a saltbox style house which were very popular in New England during the late 1600s to the early 1800s.

The original owner is selling the house. We met him a few weeks back. He's 85 years old and sweet as can be. He took us through the house and told us all kinds of fun facts like how there used to be a kiln in the basement because his wife was a sculptor (amazing). He also told us that they had the house built so the exterior resembled that of a historic New England house they saw a magazine that was in Massachusetts (and by saw, I mean they went there and toured the house).

It's big. Not overwhelmingly but it gives us room to grow. 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, and a lot of square feet. It's also on an acre of land surrounded by trees (we do have neighbors, just not super close). Also, an award winning school district for when we have kids (one of the major reasons for the move) #adulting

There's a giant screened in back porch which I can't wait to sit in on summer nights and rainy days. 

Just like this house, we're renovating everything. This time a little slower though. Life was nuts when we were renovating our house. B's been extra busy with work lately and with the wedding coming up I told him that we shouldn't get started on anything crazy. Taking down wallpaper and painting are the first steps. Once the wedding and craziness is over we'll install new hardwood and gut the kitchen. There's actually a ton to do, but I'll save that list for a later post. For now, you can take a 3D tour of the house (if anyone is having issues viewing on their phone, click the link here):
