Our first home.

There has been a lot of excitement, anticipation and a few sleepless nights around here.

And the big news is...
we are homeowners,
for the very first time!

We picked up the keys on Saturday and I'm still pinching myself. 

We will be back in California is less than a year.  I've been decorating in my head for the last month while we signed and filed a mountain of paperwork.  Kevin was so patient and diligent with this process.  He calculated, researched and put in hours of thought into the process.  How lucky am I to have such a thoughtful husband?

We love our new place.  We can't wait to play in the backyard with Chloe and sit on our front porch.  I've dreamed my whole life of having a home with a porch.  A place to sit and sip tea.  It may not be a creaky craftsman porch but this one will delight me everyday. 

Needless to say, we are thrilled and feel so blessed to have such a beautiful home to return to.  Which also means, lots of trips to our hometown in the next year.

Thank you so much, Katie! We are very excited. Yep, it is in our home town. We can't wait to return. And be so much closer. I'd love to get our girls together again soon. How do they grow so fast?
