Loving Our New Home

I love our new home.  It is so hard to believe it was for sale for almost a year.  It seems it was just waiting for us to come along.  It is perfect for us - both the house and the property feel so good.  We are told that the main reason people gave for not wanting it was that the kitchen had not been updated since it was built in 1992.  OK, it may not have stainless steel appliances and  granite countertops houston / seattle / portland / wherever, but it is in very nice shape, and maybe someday we will add granite. We already added a stainless steel refrigerator, because the previous owners took their with them, so, we are already part-way there.

The kids got to pick out the paint colors for their rooms, and they turned out so good! They both love their rooms, and already seem so much more settled in and happy than at our last place, which was already an improvement over the tiny apartment we had before that.  More room means less being in each other's space, I guess.  We are all happy and grateful for our new home!
