This was a big weekend for us. We had some family in town and, of course, it was Thanksgiving, but that isn’t what made it a big weekend around here. Our weekend was big because….we moved!!
I realized as I was posting on Facebook about our moving day that I hadn’t really told very many people, oops. Ya, so, we decided to buy a house here in Seattle. Apartment living just wasn’t working and we really wanted a house so that it would really start feeling like home here. After much searching and a few offers that got rejected we found our perfect house. Our first offer was turned down in favor of a higher offer but the higher offer fell through so they came back to us and everything worked out and the house was ours. It really was meant to be We love our new house and are busy unpacking and getting settled in.
Without further ado, some pictures. Excuse the mess, I’m still in the midst of unpacking

Master bedroom and bathroom, and the girls rooms.
We feel like we have so much space. The house is huge compared to our apartment and is even quite a bit bigger than our house in St. Louis. I’m having a lot of fun getting settled in and figuring out how to place our furniture. The last two days have been gorgeous and the sun in streaming in the back windows soaking the whole back half of the house (where we spend most of our time) in tons of natural light. I’m loving it.
