Thank you all so much for all the finger-crossing, prayers, and well wishes... we are so excited we can hardly see straight. Next on our list of things to-do: have the inspection done on the house... and then we can close within the month. Wow, so exciting!
So, I have to share, because it is completely appropriate and very hilarious - I drew this picture when I was 10, of what I expected my future to be like. It had an essay attached, which I unfortunately lost, but I still remember the fact that I wanted to be a colonial farmer living in Williamsburg, Virginia (I was a very... shall we say 'unusual'.... 10 year old, just in case you were wondering).
Um. I thought churning butter and washing clothes on a metal wash board sounded like a mighty fine life. I also couldn't wait to stick the world's largest magenta bow over my farmhouse door. hmmmm...
I may or may not be putting a ginormous bow on my house-to-be (leaning toward the may not side), but I can't wait to scour every craft room photo and little girl's room photo that flickr has to offer, as I gather ideas for how I'm going to decorate my place. I actually get to paint the walls any color I like! Wooooot!
Please keep those well wishes coming as we get all the house stuff sorted and I'll keep you posted! Eeeeeee, I'm so excited!
