We bought our first house!

Matt and I bought a HOUSE! I can hardly believe it myself. Matt and I were searching the market; I probably had the bug more then Matt did (women are shoppers by nature) and was house hunting like crazy. We love the house we live in now, but we rent it for what we could be paying a mortgage to own a house. The Lord does work in mysterious ways though, Matt and I had found the most beautiful house in downtown Redlands and we were really hoping to get it, but someone else put in offer down so we didn’t get it. At that point I slowed down my search and gave it to God. I felt like the searching was over. It’s hard for Matt to understand how a house here in California can cost 300k and be so small in comparison to the homes that were in Memphis for 300k. But the more he saw the more he understood. About two weeks ago Matt and I went with our realtor to look at homes in Redlands and in Yucaipa, the first couple we saw was ok and we really saw some huge potential in one of them but it would have been a real fixer upper. At this point I didn’t really care if we moved right away; I was waiting for the perfect house no matter how long it took. So then the next day we went and looked at some more homes in Yucaipa the city right above Redlands, the first home we walked in the first thing we thought was “when do we sign the papers!”. The home was nothing special on the outside but when we walked in we felt right at home. The whole house has been remodeled into the most charming house I have ever been in. And that’s the perfect word for this home, charming. The owners are Christians and  and when Matt went over to the house for the inspection the owner of the house prayed with Matt. We are so excited about moving, and can’t wait to have you all over soon!
