Saying Goodbye and moving on!

This past week as we prepare to make our move to Nashville TN I have been on a rollar coaster of emotions. If you could hug a house I would. I realized this week how much I put into my house both literally and figuratively! :-) Yes I look forward to starting over in a new home and the home we have the fortune and opportunity to purchase is wonderful. But this is the home where I brought my babies home to. This is the home I have laughed, cried, mourned, held celebrations, dinners made so many memories in. It is near impossible to picture another family here doing the same thing.
I also want to warn those entering the real estate market to be careful. We had to major hiccups that I truly thought were going to make every hair on my head turn gray! Two areas to watch out for; Appraisers and Banks. We had the unfortunate luck of getting a highly incompetent appraiser. You might think well no big deal you request a different one. Yeah one would think in a fair and just world this would be true but no it isn't. Secondly banks can do almost anything they want to like pulling a loan out from under you at the last minute! :-)
I plan on keeping everyone up to date on our progress but it might take a little while. Hope every one is eagerly awaiting spring as much as I am.

New Home!!!

Well our 4 + month wait to sell our home finally paid off. We are under contract and boy does it feel good (most of the time). I don't remember another time in my life when my emotions were on a roller coaster, not even during my two pregnancies!

If all goes well we close on our existing house at the end of February and make our way to Brentwood TN closing on our new home on March 1st. Yes I said new home! We are very blessed to have everything fall into place so wonderfully. God is so in the details as I am very fully aware that this was not done of my own will.

Here are some pictures of our new home. I am so excited to share these and hope that this year i will be able to share with all of you my decorating journey!

Soon it will be what color, fabric should I use! I can't wait for that. Right now though I am overwhelmed with all the things that I will need to accomplish before the 25th. But if you have any color recommendations please post them. I have tried a variety of greens by digitally covering the areas on my computer but can't seem to come up with a color that really speaks to me for the kitchen/great room!
I do have a few crafts/DIY items to post before boxing up this house so stay tuned!
