Thursday afternoon, I was just about to get off of work and was blissfully unaware that my day - and whole life, really - was about to change drastically. Before I begin, I should explain that my Mattie and I have been working on lending and what have you to get a house for the past month or so. Well, on Thursday around 3 in the afternoon, Matthew got a call from our Realtor saying that our lending was all squared away...and oh yeah, by the way...there's this great government incentive program for new homeowners that ends in three days.
Now, I've never bought a house before, but even I know that you don't just have one land in your lap within three days. But we decided to give it a shot AND WE WERE WRONG. Turns out, houses DO land in your lap within three days time if that's what God has in mind. We are now the proud homeowners of this little beauty. I just know that the timing and the place were exactly right, and it really just feels like the house picked us more than we picked it.
Did I mention that she's only a five minute walk from the cute little lake (glorified pond really, but who's counting?) where we took our engagement pictures?! Seriously a dream come true.
