So we are upgrading and moving today!
Last year about this time we downsized from our first home into a small 2 bedroom one bath cottage that was 900 square feet. It was Reuben’s parents’ rental property that we helped them remodel all summer. It is a very cute home, and perfect for one person or a newlywed couple just starting out. It was great for us trying to get back on our feet once I lost my job and to be close to his parents while we had Evelyn.
Now that Evelyn is on the go all the time, crawling and almost about to walk, it was due time that we found a bigger place to accommodate a family of three. The small living quarters of the 2 bedroom cottage was just not enough room for our active family.
We found a place just down the street from where we were living and even closer to our works. Out of 35+ applicants who called and left messages to view the home, we were the ones that were picked. Today we move in. The home is a remodeled farm home on 6 acres, plenty of room for Evelyn to romp outside as she grows. The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one a bathtub!) and a large living space. There is also a separate nook for Reuben’s office and another living space to make a craft room for me. Total square footage of the house, 1500! We are doubling our space, did I say double, I ment double PLUS!
I am so excited to get moved in: the feeling of having room to walk around, Evelyn to play, and to be able to invite guests over to our house without it being uncomfortable will be such a blessing.
So excited for this move and for our family! Yay for fall, the changing seasons and this move!
