In Love With Life

It's been radio silence for the past couple of weeks here at Journeys of Mangonett due to the chaos that is home shopping, packing, and finding renters for our current place. Midst all the craziness I'm happy to finally announce that WE FOUND A HOUSE!

Yes! The search is finally over! Our offer has been accepted, inspection is done, financing has been started, and now we anxiously await has the closing date draws near this May. 

The house meets our wishlist:

- 1 story
- pool and a nice back yard for Jack
- bigger kitchen
- our own closets!
- 3-4 bedrooms

Not the longest wishlist when you compare it to the wishlists you typically see on those House Hunters shows on HGTV. However the biggest criteria was the home's location, and we are so happy that we finally found it!

It needs some TLC, but the bones are great, which means that I can finally put all of those endless hours of pinning to good use and create something we can grow into over the years. 

I'll make sure to post pictures once the house is finally ours, but I couldn't wait to share. We're already getting quotes for jobs we want to do right away. Let the renovations and decorating begin!
