A Place to Hang Our Hat

The last couple of weeks have been a blur of house listings, viewings, open houses, loan documents, Realtors, and neighborhood statistics, but I'm happy to announce that as of last night Eric and I bought a house! I'm sure that those of you who have purchased a home before know the insane flurry of things to follow before it can be officially official, but that doesn't make this moment any less fantastic!

We ended up finding a home that needs just the right amount of TLC, just a couple of blocks from the Mississippi River. It was built in 1924 and I believe it may even have the original owner's player piano in the basement. :) It has a nice backyard for Harper and when we told him about it, he did a little dance. I'll admit it, I did a little dance too.

There will be more pictures to follow - especially as we start putting it together - but here's a few for now.

Nice! Hardwood is nice, but I guess you already know that if I remember right from your old place. Harper should love the yard! I wish we had one of those for the poodles.

Congrats - I hope everything works out smoothly. The house looks really nice and I'm sure you two will be able to make it a comfortable home.
