Closing Day at Our New Home

The day we officially closed on our new home.
After looking at several houses in NKY, we came back to the very 1st one we saw.  For me it was the front porch and the plantation shutters all over the house (Our seller had good taste) and for Kev it was the backyard and kitchen nook. It was just the one.
This house will be the house Kev and I could potentially call home for 10 plus years. That is an amazing feeling....a house where one day you plan to raise your future children.
We are absolutely in love with it and almost 4 weeks later, we know 110 percent that made the right decision. 
Thank you sweet Dana for holding our hands through this process and making our new home a reality. 
Take a peek at closing day photos. 
More to come ....i promise! 

We were overwhelmed with the amount of generosity our sellers showed Kevin and I.
They left us so many things that were just so thoughtful. Everything from a stocked fridge of wine and beer to cleaning supplies and tools, planters, patio furniture......mind blowing!
Not to mention the round pottery barn table they surprised us with as a gift at final walk through. Who does that? I was speechless and humbled. 

And check out some of our housewarming gifts that Dana, our realtor, showed up with. You know I am obsessed with them! 

And here she is....our home sweet home 

A couple of quick details 
- She's only 4 years old with one owner before us who left the house immaculate. I swear it feels brand spanking new. And I am such a new construction snob, and this house has stolen my heart.
-4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, with plans for a full bath in the basement that has been roughed in
-2 story with humongo basement that is partially finished. The house has so much room for Kevin and I to grow into. Once we finish out the basement, we will have  a little over 4500 square feet to play with. I love that even with a few kiddos we will still have plenty of room. Such a great feeling to know we can setup shot here for a long, long time.  
-1st floor master. Kev and I are obsessed with a first floor master and I never thought we would be, but I will never go back. Added bonus for our aging dogs to avoid steps 
- back yard is heaven. so much room for us and the doggies
-we have a pool and park in our neighborhood, pretty pumped for that this summer!! 
- and i am just in absolute love with having a front porch :-)

The doggies are loving it too! 

Home tour to come. It's such a process to unpack and get things just the way you want them, but we are making progress everyday!
Such an exciting time for Kev and I!
We have been so blessed with the moving process and are so thankful for new beginnings

Yay! Cannot wait to see a tour- I still need to do that for ours. I totally agree about the room to grow thing. It is so crazy knowing that the home we have now is where we will bring our babies home to!
