Official Homeowners!
















It's official--Steve and I closed on the house today--we have the keys in our possession!

We had been warned about all the glitches and drama that can go along with buying a house, but God really blessed us. The entire process was incredibly smooth and painless. We can HIGHLY recommend our realtor and mortgage broker--we loved working with both of them!

We plan to spend the next couple of weeks making some repairs/painting/cleaning/etc, and we'll be moving gradually--we don't have to be out of our apartment until August 1.

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. What a beautiful house. It makes Dwayne and I yearn for a house of our own...;-)

Congratulations! I am glad that it went so smoothly for you. It can be so stressful, as it was for us, and I was 6 months pregnant at the time.
I can't wait to see pictures!
