I have been meaning to write this post for the past month and a half, however, I didn’t want to start it until we had the house mainly unpacked. I hate pictures of stacks of boxes. No one wants to see that. However, we are now mostly all unpacked and settled in and so it’s a great time to post about our new home.
We started on this journey back in April to purchase our second home. After we found out that we were expecting a baby, we knew we had to move to a bigger place. Although, Peter and I both agreed that we weren’t going to move unless we could find a significantly bigger upgrade with most of the features we wanted. Our biggest requirement was that we found a place with a garage. After over a month of searching and countless viewings, we found the perfect home. Possession date was August 1st and we have been settling in ever since.
As we were packing and before we had even moved, I felt a little sad and homesick. I honestly thought that I would miss my old home terribly once we were in the new place. Now that we have been living in our new home for a month and a half, I realize that I don’t even miss the old one! I love our new house so much. The only thing that is a little weird is being so far away from everything while we are sleeping. At our first house, everything was on one floor and we could hear anything that was going on. Now with this house we are all the way upstairs and really have no idea what is happening on the main floor or basement. It’s a little scary and I am a tiny bit paranoid about burglars. However we live in a safe neighbourhood, so I’m really just letting my mind get away from me too much. All is well, really.
Here are pictures of the new place. There are LOTS of them, so you are forewarned!! You can also view the complete album here.
