We Bought A House!!!

We are so excited to announce...
that we got a house!!!! :) 



Incredibly, we found it on a one day search!
I'm a little terrified because it needs a LOT of work to make it ours,
and it was the most expensive house we have ever bought.
But it's going to be just fine... it just needs a little lot of love :)
We just need to get it done before kids arrive {foster kids or our own}
{That means we have years, lol... kidding!}

We are excited because this house we can finally make it a home,
rather than just a temporary house.
Good thing Trav and I will have a month off before we start working.
