Closing day!

Today is the big day - we close on our first home in just a few hours!

What a crazy journey this whole "building a house" thing has been. Almost everyone we talked to that has gone through the same experience warned us about how trying, challenging and horrible it could possibly be. Truthfully, James and I had a ball from start to finish; we really haven't had any problems at all. Our builder and real estate agent are fantastic, and I'm sure working with them is the main reason why we've had such a positive experience. It has been so rewarding to sit down and draw floor plans with a team of people and then see it come to life in only a few months! I can't help but smile when I look at our cute little house.

I'm going to be taking a few days off from blogland to unpack the ridiculous amount of boxes we have, but I will be posting pictures soon for those of you who are curious to see "after" photos.

Be thinking of us as we schlep our junk from Atlanta to Athens today and tomorrow. (I groan to myself).

Have a great weekend, everybody :)
