January- Last January we listed our home for sale on a whim... After our first showing we had a contract and a month later we were gone. It is crazy to think back to how fast it all happened. It also reminds me that we have been somewhat "homeless for nearly a year now"
I miss things about our old house, but cant wait to put life into our new house.
May- We closed our loan on our land and started the process to build a house. We also had a little bubbly to celebrate on the afternoon of our closing. Photo credit by Keating.
We also took a quick trip to the beach and tried to keep Archer from eating massive amounts of sand.
June - We enjoyed a week at the beach with my family and celebrated my 29th birthday.
July - We officially finished with all of the permitting and started building our house. It was the soggiest month in the history of Georgia and it took all of July for us to even get the basement completed. We were having to time our cement pours in between rain storms.
August - I decided that I wanted an old claw foot tub for our house and began researching what it would take to restore one. I found one on craigslist and sealed the deal for $300. The next month I spent my free time stripping and sanding paint off of it. It was super fun to sand and scrape paint in 95 degree heat. Cant wait to show the final reveal!
September- Keating had his first day of preschool. He really enjoyed himself but constantly reminded us that he wished there was more play time.
We also took the boys for their first UGA tailgate.
and enjoyed Thanksgiving with our family and friends.
and I managed to get a decent photo of my kids.
