Well, it’s official, my friends: We are for real grown-up, signed on all the (many) dotted lines HOMEOWNERS as of yesterday! I still kind of can’t believe it, but it’s true! They gave us keys and everything.
This sweet little 119 year old, 1.5 story house on the near West side of Chicago now officially belongs to us, nearly 2 months to the day that we first saw it. It’s been a long and bumpy road to get to this place, and on a number of occasions it looked pretty likely that this day would not come, but I guess that it was meant to be, and now it’s ours! (We found out last night that the previous owner was actually named Christine– crazy, right?!)
So now the real work of painting, updating, packing and unpacking begins! Oh, and don’t worry– that front door will be a bright color soon enough. Any suggestions? ; )
