I am so content. This is our last calm weekend before a flurry of activity the next few weeks and I could not be happier sitting here on our couch, watching NPT, sipping hot chocolate with Gracie laying on my feet, and soaking in the memories of our tiny first apartment. Because guess what. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!
I know, I know. It's crazy! Well, we technically haven't bought it yet, but our offer has been accepted and as long as the inspections and appraisal go well, we're closing on November 22nd! I'm awash with emotion, unsurprisingly, but overall very excited for this adventure. We found the perfect little ranch house in Donelson (the area of town we were really wanting to relocate to), and the outside is 100% midcentury. It's perfect! The inside was flipped, so it's brand new but still with the character of the 1950s and a few quirks here and there. We absolutely fell in love with the tiny bedrooms, beautiful hardwoods, and spacious backyard - among other things.
In addition to this huge blessing, Logan was offered a job he originally didn't even intend to apply for. God works in such mysterious ways, doesn't he? He will officially start on December 6th at HCA in the IT & Services department as a User Interface Visual Designer (that's a mouthful, huh?).
Besides those two things, Logan is finishing up his Capstone for graduation and I'm working a holiday show for Lemon Tree AND we leave for Paris/Rome in two weeks - hence the last restful weekend for awhile. :)
I am so thankful for the incredible ways God is moving in our life - especially after such a difficult valley this summer. Hopefully as life calms down in the new year I'll be able to write a little more and perhaps begin to chronicle all the projects we have planned for our sweet little home! :)
