I wrote this a while ago but never got a chance to post it!!!
We finally picked up the keys to our new dream home! Originally we thought we were getting the keys on Feb.9th as this is what our lawyer had informed us but Branko received an email from the sellers lawyer advising the keys were ready to be picked up on Feb 7th! So last night we made our way over there after work.
Driving down our new street around 5pm;the sun was just starting to set.
It really felt picture perfect!
To our surprise we had 2 cards in envelopes sitting on the kitchen table with our names on them. Opened the first card and it was a lovely note from our new neighbours. Telling us a bit about themselves and welcoming us to the street! They are a retired couple who obviously love to travel since they advised we won't be able to meet them till April. They were just preparing to leave for South Africa! (maybe they can convince my husband to fly one day!) The second card was from the sellers of the house. This was an estate sale so the house was left to the 3 children. They left us there names and contact numbers in case we needed to know anything about the property and also a little story talking about how when each tree was planted they had a celebration around each tree! Talk about real outdoors people!
After reading the cards we walked out onto the deck and took our first picture together in our new home! The sun was just setting and the moment was perfect!
This weekend is wrecking weekend! Will definately update next week with our progress!
