How We Met Our House…
Kevin and I got married on July 12, 2009 and we had planned and prepared to move right into his house. After painting the entire house and re-carpeting… we nixed the plan. We decided we wanted to move into a place that was new and had neighborhood amenities as well as incorporated maintenance free living (we don’t have to cut the grass, clean the pool). So since Kevin is a realtor, we found our home in no time!!
So, here were our parameters:
- We determined our Budget 1st
- We determined how much space we would like (3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, nice kitchen, a laundry room, a nice size living room and dining)
- We wanted a newer, upgraded townhome
- Then, we fought hard for the best price!
So, now we get to enjoy this fabulous townhome… it’s close to shopping & restaurants as well as a short distance to the beach!
It’s our “first” place and we love the comfort it brings and the style it grants. It truly has been the perfect home for us to begin our “story” together in!
We have only lived here for almost a year and it’s far from finished… we are painting and rearranging and still purchasing our “big staples”…. But we love it!
Here is a “small” tour… The inside story: We are painting our living room, guest room and master bedroom… so stay tuned for the “reveals”… (click here for the original post about painting)
