New House

We got a new house! Yeah, it was back in June and I am just now getting around to posting about it. I am so in love with the new house. Our first house was in Holly Springs and my commute was pretty bad. We finally decided that it was time to move closer to work and sold the house we lived in for eight years, the house we bought right before we got married, the one we brought Calvin into as a tiny pup and he lived there for eight years, the one we brought our (now almost 6 year old) baby C home to. It was a little sentimental leaving the house, but we were so excited about the new one, it didn’t bother us too much. The new one is a little bigger, but smaller yard. Hubby says that is fine since he is the one mowing it anyway. I hadn’t realized until we had lived there for 6 years that we didn’t have a self-propelled lawn mower and our yard was big and hilly. We finally have all our bedrooms on the same floor. So far we love the new neighborhood, but what we love even more is being so close to everything. That can be dangerous, too, though. We live about ¼ miles from Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Kohls, restaurants, BJ’s, movie theatre, and more. We live about 3 miles from C’s school, which will make his mornings easier, he had been in the car for about thirty minutes to get to school. We live 3 miles from a go-kart track, maybe 4 to the Raleigh Farmer’s Market. It is super cool.

Congratulations! What a lovely home and Tony would be so jealous of the reduced lawn care load. Wishing you many blessings in your new home.
