Home Sweet Home

I have some news to share...I'm a little nervous telling everyone because I strongly believe in the power of the jinx but I think your good vibes and positive thoughts can overcome any jinxes :)

So with that build up out of the way......We're in escrow! Yippee! After over 50 offers, the killing of several trees {seriously, there needs to be a more eco-friendly way to buy a house these days} and driving our real estate agents absolutely crazy - our home has found us at last.

The inspection went really well, as did the appraisal and we've been signing boatloads of paperwork but no champagne or happy dances until the keys are in our hot little hands! So lots of positive thoughts that everything goes as planned and on December 16th we officially become homeowners. Merry Christmas to us!

Here's a photo from the listing - it's of the upstairs deck and you can even see the ocean in the distance! We plan to spend many evenings up there enjoying a cocktail or two. You're all welcome to join us :)
