New Chapter

Ryan and I have had a crazy month. We have been thinking about buying a new home for a while now (.12 acres=tiny yard), but haven't been able to find anything appealing enough to convince us to leave our friends and neighborhood. We thought seriously about building, and even bought a lot in Draper. Last month we found a home in Alpine that we loved, and after countless ups and downs, backs and forths, on agains, off agains...we are moving! We are excited. We are sad. We are scared. Pretty much a huge jumble of emotions. Since the time we put the offer on the house Ryan has been in Romania, Switzerland and China. And next week he leaves for Australia. So trying to figure out the details of buying a house, selling a lot and selling a house (not to mention packing!!!) have been a little tricky. Serious, serious thanks go to our agent Dana Conway for keeping us sane and making this happen. She really is the best. And her blog is really funny.

We are not excited about the next week of packing up, moving out, and settling in, but we are excited to have this as the view from our driveway.
