Self portrait project // 10

52 self portraits // a thousand threads
Okay you guys, it’s been busy. But there are so many updates to share!

First — and I’m so scared to jinx this because so much could still go wrong, but here goes — our house is under contract! We have an inspection and appraisal to get through (Any recommendations for super sly appraisal bribes? just kidding… sort of.) and then we’re out by the end of the month. SO soon…

The good news is (and again, fingers crossed!) we already have a contract on a new house!!

It’s a little bit closer to the city, but still in a rural community we love, and more perfect than I ever thought we’d find. There’s still some work to be done, but that’s just the way we like it, since eventually we’ll be able to personalize all of the details that will make it our home for what we hope will be years to come. I’m just dying to show you around, but I suppose we should probably get through what will now be two appraisals and two inspections…

Let’s just hope my sanity holds out until May.

The big life events all seem to be coming at once.

    Based on the picture I have a rough idea of where your new house is and I am SO JEALOUS! We looked there but couldn’t find just the right place.

    Also, we tried to get our appraiser to RAISE the price of the appraisal on our house, and he wouldn’t do it… those people tend to be ethical to a fault these days! šŸ˜‰ But pie can’t hurt!

      Actually the picture is a little misleading haha, we bought a place in Poolesville — close to the water but not quite as close as this. And darn those appraisers and their integrity haha. šŸ˜‰ We’re so excited though!! Can’t wait to share more about the house!
