I can't believe it's ours! (SOL18 #13)
As we walked into the empty house it still didn't seem real to me. The wooden floors gleamed almost as much as my husband's eyes. So much space. We walked through each room excited for the possibilities. As each door was opened we both couldn't get over how this place would become our home. This place would be where we would start our family. This place would be where we would entertain our recently combined families. As we continued to walk around OUR house I my excitement turned to worry and apprehension about how we would make this place our own.
I think I want the couch there. Or maybe there.
Will we ever have enough to fill all these cabinets?
Should we repaint?
How will we ever get our bed up the stairs and around this corner?
Gosh, we need patio furniture.
This fenced yard needs a dog.
We need to get guest room furniture.
Should this be the office?
A note was taped to the door of the refrigerator from the former home owners.
Dear Katie & Phil,
We are so excited that you will be sharing in the joy that is the Liberty house. We have shared many great moments here and know that she will also be good to you.
We've left some cold bottles of soda and water in the fridge for when you move in. Please enjoy every second.
The Former Owners
Even though this happened seven years ago, I remember it like it was yesterday. To be honest, I still have the same feeling. I can't believe it's ours.
