August 15th was the last time I wrote anything here on the blog…  I didn’t mention it that day, but only 4 days before that, we put a For-Sale-By-Owner sign in our yard.   We’ve always known we wouldn’t stay in our house forever and the market seemed right in our neighborhood to give it a try.  We weren’t in any hurry, so it didn’t matter much to us if it sat on the market for several months… or even longer! 

However, there was a different plan in store!  We showed the house twice in the first two weeks with our sign, and took several other phone calls about it.  We only posted about the house in a few places online, luckily one of those brought us our buyer.  So tomorrow is our last official day of owning our first home.  We close on the sale of the first house we purchased together, the first house we lived in as a married couple, the first house we brought our puppy home to, and the first house we shared lots of other memories in.  It’s pretty surreal. 

So, if you’ve been wondering why it is quiet around here, it’s because we’re packing up our stuff and spending any other spare time we have searching for our next home.   We have less than 24 hours left to own our home, and less than 12 days to live in it.  Time to pack in some last memories and lots of boxes!  Can’t wait til we find that perfect house, when we do, I’ll be sure to share, but don’t be surprised if you don’t hear much from me before then!
