We did it. We closed on our house yesterday and became full-fledged grown ups. I woke up yesterday morning feeling almost as giddy as I was on our wedding day. It’s a big deal, buying a house! Another level of commitment to each other and the family we hope to start in this house.
To celebrate we picked up a pizza from the absolute best pizza place in Atlanta (Antico), popped a bottle of bubbly, and had an indoor picnic on our living room floor. It was the best. Here are few grainy and terrible iPhone photos from my favorite date I think I’ve ever had.
I found a contractor I like and meet with him tomorrow to get some firm numbers on budget and time frame and we should start demolition soon, like maybe this week. But I’ll be sure to take lots of “before” photos so you can follow along with our progress.
