We bought a house.
Eeep. I still can’t believe it!
It’s an adorable home here in Florida that feels as though it was meant for our family.
It might seem like an odd decision for us since we aren’t permanent here and we don’t know when the next time we’ll be moving is but we weighed the pros and cons and decided to go for it.
Matt and I have been considering purchasing here in Florida since before we moved here. We knew it could be a potential investment. Once we arrived here and got a feel for what areas we liked we took the plunge. Our base house really is lovely, in fact probably the best military housing we’ve ever lived in. However, it’s missing the essential backyard since we live in a town home. Not only that, we just love DIY so having a home of our own opens up tons of possibilities when it comes to renovations. If you come here for rental decor ideas – don’t worry, there will still be plenty of temporary ideas to share since we know we won’t be here forever.
A little scoop on the house:
It’s an all brick ranch style house. Four bedrooms with a huge back yard. It was a foreclosure that sat empty for a long time so it needs a lot of cosmetic work right off the bad (new floors, serious cleaning, all new paint, etc.)
We closed on the house just a few days after Millie was born and we’ve been working on it since. I can’t wait to share all the ideas I have for this project.
If you haven’t noticed – we like to keep our lives as busy as humanly possible. So we thought why not buy a house right around the time our new baby is to be born. That will be fun. But really, we couldn’t be happier (or feel more blessed) with all of the balls we have in the air right now.
