So if you haven't picked up on my hints lately... Jared and I have been doing a LOT of home improvements in the past few weeks. We spent the majority of the last 6 months decluttering and simplifying our home and our possessions. We got rid of our excess and have been slowly but surely updating things in our home that desperately needed a face lift. Why, you might ask? Why now, when we've lived in this house for almost 6 years?
Well, it's because we're moving!
Yep! Our little family of three is finally moving on and moving up. We've kicked around the idea of seriously moving for the past year(ish) and things are finally falling into place. Not only are we moving, but we'll be BUILDING in a new development. I truly never thought we'd be able to make this dream a possibility but it's really happening!
Originally our plan was to stay in our current home until it was paid off, which would be about another 2-3 years. But honestly? If we stayed here and paid it off, our very first reaction to paying it off would be to move out of it. So we started feeling the whole, "Why wait?" thing. Why work on paying this one off, only to move to a nicer, larger home with a mortgage we would then be working to pay off as well? Time is of the essence, right!?
We have a lot of equity in our current home and have been saving our pennies for this day, so we feel like we're in a good place to move. T is such a joy in our lives and we hope to continually grow our family. We are excited to be in a bigger house before any other kiddos come along.
I have about 50 other posts on various home/moving/financial/Sallie&Perkins posts that I now feel like I can write and put out there- so I'm excited to share this process with you all. As of right now? We are prepping our current home the best we can to get it on the market and get it sold. Lord, help us all!! ;)
