I’m so excited to share this news/update with you! If you followed me at Flying Through Water, you know that we needed to find a new home. If you’re not aware…here’s a brief backstory,
We have been living in a duplex owned by a family member for 7 years and they decided without warning that they are selling it. We’ve known for about a month and it’s been shown several times and even had an inspection. The house was supposedly bought and then wasn’t and now is showing as sold again and we are being given no information. It’s extremely stressful not knowing what the hell is going to happen from one day to another. Or who is going to be in your home from one day to another. It’s frustrating and feels very disrespectful to be kept in the dark. Nevermind that the person who buys this house may want to live in it or at the very least raise our rent. It’s not been a pleasant situation.
So while we were not going to make a snap decision we did decide to start looking around our city for options. We wanted to take our power back and we decided to look at this as an opportunity to improve things rather than the blind-side it had felt like.
Now I am a huge believer in the power of our thoughts. I started this little affirmation:
We will find the perfect home for our family.
I said it many times throughout the days and weeks that followed. We saw several places that were major misses but I did not allow it to bring me down. I just kept saying my affirmation and kept my eyes open.
Steve drove past a place one day and came home and looked it up sure that they would not accept our little Vivi.
He was wrong.
We will be moving mid-October. Everything is signed….notice has been given….measurments taken……celebrating happening on a daily basis and LOTS of work to do!
It’s a much smaller place but that’s perfect for us. It’s a (say this in your fanciest voice) ‘luxury’ apartment. Oooo La La!
The place is still very new, built about a year ago, and that will be amazing after living in a house that was built when I was a child.
The pool is stunning and while it will probably be closed by the time we move in, the view from our new front door (pictured above) is not going anywhere.
Thank you to those of you that were sending out good wishes and positive vibes! We can’t wait for our move in date!
Thanks for reading!
