Movin' On Up!

In April our house sold (finally after being listed for about 2.5 years). We knew that we would build again and this time we chose to build in town! I'm quite excited to live in town - the main street is so sweet with lots of little shops to visit and I'll be able to walk downtown to visit them :) Where we are now it's a 10 minute drive to get there, and a 20-25 minute drive to fast food LOL. I shouldn't be excited to be closer to it, but I am. I'm mostly excited for convenience, of stores being right there when we need something and not have to pay $3 extra for a box of tampons. I think I rage about that even more when I need them since the hormones are flying wild during that time :)

So we picked our lot in the cutest little subdivision that won't really have any traffic that doesn't live there, that has basically a dog or two in every home, and that has children running and playing on the street. I am so excited to live here, and I'm excited for us to start our family here, God willing :)

Mike has been working so hard to build this house. This is the first time I've been able to see him working and I'm so amazed with what he does! He's been so great with organizing all the trades to do the work on the house. And he spends most of his spare time working on it himself (even after working a 13hr day and then doing it all again the next day). I knew he had a very strong work ethic, but I've truly seen how amazing it is. Even though we have so much going on right now between the wedding, setbacks with school, me not having a job right now, and building this house our relationship continues to grow and we are able to see how well we can work together - it does take effort though. But it is so so worth it.
It's been crazy how fast Mike has pulled this house together! I still don't think we'll be in it on time, maybe a week or two late. But it's been amazing how quickly it can go.
There are more updates but I haven't taken pictures of them, I'll have to get on that! We've got windows and doors and it's getting drywalled right now! We'll be painting in no time! I picked out the colours today :) I'm quite excited.
