New Beginnings

No better time than the present to try to play catcy up!  I have fallen off the blogger wagon but wanted to document this new beginning for my little Lamb fam...the purchase of our forever home!  We made the decision to put our home on the market back in March with the hopes of purchasing a home that was a steal.  That home sold, and I was really discouraged but everyone encouraged us to keep looking because it wasn't meant to be.  So we continued to leave our home for sale in hopes we would find another home that we loved as much or more than the other.  At the end of May, we had an offer on our home and things were moving along with that but still had no luck on a future purchase.  We started cruising neighborhoods we liked hoping we would find something that struck our fancy just as we had we with our first home.  Adam first saw our new home online and with it being near his parents, we took a drive on the golf cart and fell in love with it!  It was surely my dream home....colonial, picket fence, hardwoods, perfectly landscaped, everything!  We immediately jumped on it when we saw the price had been lowered $20k only three days prior.  We knew it would go fast so we got the ball rolling Father's Day weekend.  It all happened so fast but it felt so right.  We closed last Friday, and we couldn't be more excited for this new beginning!  We've been hard at work this week getting it move-in ready.  We have to wait on the cabinet guy until Monday but can hardly wait to hopefully start sleeping there this weekend!  Sunday is our 6th anniversary, so what a sweet gift that will be to begin sleeping at our forever home. 

We made so many memories at our very first home from spending our wedding night there to bringing each of babies home there, but house is just house and its all about the memories you make there.  I look forward to the many memories that will be made at our forever home with our precious girls and all the joy and laughter that will fill this new home.  It makes me a little emotional just thinking about it.  I don't know where we would be without the help of our family and friends.  They've all pitched in someway, shape or form to make this dream of ours a reality!  I'm so thankful for my hardworking hubby who works all day and then goes to the new house to work some more.  He works so hard to provide for our family and I couldn't be more blessed by him.  I'm a girl with a very full and very happy heart!
