The Big Announcement!

Wowsers! I had 9 comments on my teaser post about our announcement! Glad to know you guys are reading. I think I must start writing things like that more often! Ya'll know how hard it is for me to keep a secret... and this was killing me but I think it is safe to say out loud now so....
We are buying a house ! While this may not sound like such big news to some, I can assure you it was a very big, emotional decision for us to make and it wasn't easy. For those who don't know, Erik, the dog children and I have been living in his parents home in Brentwood for the past year. A lot of people have questioned that decision implying it wasn't healthy etc and I can see why you would think that, but the truth is, this house is very meaningful and special and comforting. I have always loved coming here because, well I guess everyone like tradition or consistency, and each time we could come visit his parents, we spent a lot of time here making fond memories. We always slept with the windows open, his dad would burn incense, we would eat mac n cheese that Mrs Norma made and relax on the couch all weekend. His mom and I would lay on the couch and read gossip magazines or I would scrapbook and she and Dr. G would both watch me do that with fascination! They would save empty water bottles for Ralphie to play with and he would be scrompling around with that noisy water bottle the whole time. Football would dominate the TV. I absolutely loved coming here. I have never been so emotionally attached to something, like I feel for this house ... except maybe my computer which was a gift from Erik. But, living here this past year, we have sort of been in a suspended reality.. and although I don't think we can ever really go back to "normal" it is time for us to try and create our own traditions and loving household. Get our stuff out of storage, and try to be "us" again.. if we can remember how.
Making the initial decision was pretty tough, but once we followed through we started getting really excited! We found a perfect cozy little cottage house in East Nashville. I am pretty sure it is my dream house. It was originally built in 1927 and restored in 2005. I will be talking about this house a lot in upcoming posts, b/c as with any home purchase, there has DEF been some drama!
So.. please meet the new home for my snuggle Family:

and to really assure me that this was the house for us, I looked across the street and see that my inner Keisha is living there. It is a bright purple house with lime green trim and turquoise porch furniture.
