Update and Thank You

I cannot say thank you enough for all of the support we received last week while trying to sell our house. You all shared it on Facebook and told your friends. It really means the world to me and makes me want to start putting more love back into this blog.

I feel like I owe everyone an explanation after broadcasting we were selling our house over the Internet. Last week we were under contract on another house, so we decided to put our house on the market. The house was on the market less than 24 hours before we realized that the new house was not going to work for our family. We were faced with a really hard decision and ultimately decided that we could not sell our house at this time. I was disappointed my "dream house" did not work out, but that is life. The house hunting process is an emotional roller coaster and I am just sad, that by listing our house we brought other people on our ride. I hate to think that our actions caused someone disappointment. We are still actively looking so if you hear of anything going on the market, let me know!

Moving On | House for Sale

A lot has transpired in the past 4 days...

Friday we made an offer on a house, left for the beach,  and the offer was accepted.  I feel like we have had so many ups and downs with the house hunt it was not expected. We literally had one day to get our house ready to put on the market.  

I never thought I would get sentimental about our house, but as we get ready to list it this week I am starting to feel a little sad. I hated everything about this stupid ranch with cream carpet and nasty bathrooms when we bought it. Over the past couple years we transformed it into something I was proud to call my home. We painted every wall ourselves and made so many memories. I started a blog to document the progress of our house and ended up getting a job that I love because of it. I hope it goes to someone who loves it as much as I do. 

The house is going on the market later this week, but I thought I would give readers a sneak peek. If you live in Raleigh and have friends who are interested in the North Hills area please send them my info and I will give them details.
