The start of our ever ever after…

We finally heard the three magic words – WE CAN CLOSE!!!!! 

On May 26, 2010 we submitted our first offer for the house we will now get to make into our home!  It’s been a very long 7 months but it will finally be ours next Friday! 

We decided then that there was no turning back and we (okay, mostly I) have been planning how to restore this property ever since with the hopes and prayers that someday we would be able to make it ours.  There is the house, a small barn, and 1.5 acres that all need quite a bit of love.  It will be an interesting journey for sure as we plan to do most of the work ourselves and we plan to chronicle it here…

Welcome to our new home at Shady Grove Farm. 

Please feel free to visit often!
