Yes, that's right. We bought a house! We've kept it on the DL (or as my wonderful mother would say, the QT) because of everything we went through with our last home and we didn't know if God had anything up his sleeves with this one! But after hearing of this place a couple months ago and taking a great man up on a great opportunity he gave us, we are so excited to be moving into our first house. It's in North Tacoma and it's only 3 blocks from Shelley's place and a 1 1/2 miles from the waterfront! I'll post pictures as soon as I can, but the keys are in my hand and we're heading over there tonight to start moving in!
As Shelley would say, here as some deets on the house:
-4 bedrooms, 1 bath
-full unfinished basement (can anyone say "party room?")
-a kitchen in need of some TLC (that's OK, because we have a lot of love to give!)
-and it's white with blue trim (and although I like blue, a paintjob will occur this summer!)
So...needless to say, we are excited! And, don't worry, when we get settled, they'll definitely be some housewarming party action going on!
Oh! And last but not least...we are extremely grateful to God who provided this home for us. If it wasn't for him and His Divine Providence we wouldn't have this opportunity. We ask that He help us give back to Him all that He has given to us.
