Yesterday we closed on our house, making us official Wilmingtonians!
I don't have pictures of it, but plan to take some tonight or tomorrow. I'll have to do it sometime when there's good light as we have 2 overhead lights that don't work and no lamps or furniture in the house yet.
We are in love--this house is quickly becoming home and we haven't even owned it for 24 hours yet! I can tell you a few things about it and why we love it so far:
1. Tons of potential. It's a fixer-upper for sure, but to us the potential sings much louder than the flaws.
2. Location. It's across from the cemetery, so there's no subdivision or gas station popping up in our neighborhood any time soon. It's around the corner from a wonderful little local shop and our favorite pizza place. It's walking distance from the church as well as a local grocery store, hardware, pharmacy and park. It's less than half a mile to the Intermediate and Middle Schools. A short distance to the elementary school and high school and all the local businesses downtown.
3. Space. There's plenty of room in this house and I doubt that our family will outgrow it.
4. Yard. The back yard is very large and completely fenced. There's a lot of work to do out there, but there's still plenty of safe, nice yard for Nora and her friends (as well as our youth group) to play outside.
We're bursting with excitement to start working on it bit by bit and really making it ours! I can't wait to share it with you all!
