Find a place to live, CHECK! If anyone is still reading this...thought I'd write a new post. I plan to update very regularly once we are settled into our new life and I don't have school to worry about, but until them, I'm sorry ahead of time for my absence! You girls know by now that we found a place, but here's the details. It's the top left unit of a two story quadraplex and I love it. It's not perfect, but it's so homey already and I can't wait to make it our own. I know that I will want to do soooo much stuff to fix up the place as far as painting and all that, but I don't plan to do much since we plan not to be there for more than a year. It's a 2/2 with rather large closets so that's a good thing! One of my favorite features is the fireplace. I can picture David and I with our doggy keeping warm in front of it cozy in front of our first Christmas trees. I am truly excited about having our own place. I'm not saying it's going to be easy moving away from home by any means, but I'm just very excited to start this new chapter. The stress of finding a job, finishing school, and planning the wedding has definitely taken its toll on me, but with this new exciting thing going on, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I bought my first ever welcome mat yesterday and I can't wait to put it out:) It's officially ours August 1st but I won't move in until after the wedding. I will definitely be over there fixing it up though. The only thing that is going to be a temporary bummer is that we are letting the existing tenant store her furniture in the guest room until August 21st when she can move into her new place. SO for the first three weeks we have it there will be a roomful of stuff that's not ours because we're being helped out from the landlord and she is being helped out too. We have a little tiny back porch that overlooks the road, but hey, it's ours:) I can't wait to move in and put my touch on what I can. I wish I could go out and buy all new furniture and stock it from head to toe with pretty things, but I know that's not how it's gonna be, so we are excited to be taking old furniture off people's hands just because a)it's free and b)we'll have something! I plan to refurbish all the older items that we have inherited so that I somewhat like them, but I know one day I can get everything the way I would like it, whether it be in this house or the next! I can't WAIT for you guys to see it, we finally have a place of our own!!
