Wooohooooo! We have a house!!



We have finally heard from our realtor and they have accepted our application for the house we wanted!!!! I am so excited and relieved! John called to tell me and seriously I wanted to cry. It has been so stressful on both of us. The owners asked us to wait one more week from what they had originally said and that works out perfect for us! We will be moving boxes over starting 4/26 and moving our furniture over on 5/7. It will be wonderful! That gives me more time to pack and get rid of some things. It will also give us more time to arrange for a truck, help, etc. This house has a fenced in yard for Teddy (our Golden Retriever) to romp around and a really nice paver patio! The owners said I can also garden and they are really happy that if we like it there we will buy it from the in 2 yrs! I also got my front porch and the owners said we can put up a porch swing if we want too! We can also paint the rooms any color we want to!

This is one happy day in our family! Thanks for everyone putting up with me, saying prayers for us and crossing your fingers :)!

I am thrilled to pieces for you! It looks like a wonderful house. I can't wait for you to move in and start your garden, hang your swing and settle in....I hope that someday I will be able to visit and sit on that porch swing with you!

Just know it will be a beautiful home when you add your touch to both the inside and the exterior. Fab porch, and can't wait to see the garden - heavy work but well worth it!

Hey, a good excuse to go treasure hunting again - we all need to head to Asheville and meet the gals!

Good luck with the move, so happy you have found your special place Sherri.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
