A month or so before Christmas, I made the decision to move. I loved our little suite so close to my sister but it was a 1-bedroom and after being there for almost two years I felt like we’d outgrown it and needed our own space (okay, I needed my own space. Olive says she wants to live with me forever.)
I took my time when looking for a new house – I wanted to find something perfect. Something I could live in for a long time. My list of requirements were modest, but I wasn’t willing to compromise on any of them. Our new home had to have:
- Two bedrooms
- A dishwasher
- A bathtub
- No carpet
- And be walking distance to an elementary school (eeeeeep)
Long story short, we found it!
