Honey, we’re home! After what feels like forever, we bought a house! The night before Thanksgiving, we were handed the keys to our very own 1930’s Tudor home here in Phoenix. We have some really big things planned for this old beauty, but it’s home, and we are beyond excited to share this experience with you guys.
Since we started our house hunt back in March, we saw more houses than we can remember. From the modern cookie-cutter to the completely gutted, mid-century homes and even a few 1940s WWII brick bungalows and Craftsman style houses. We knew we wanted a charmer, but didn’t know how to describe exactly what we were looking for until we found our Tudor.
It’s hard to put into words exactly what we were feeling when we first opened the door to our house on move-in day. Our hearts were pounding, our eyes were teary from the entire drive over, and we stood in the living room of our empty house with huge, giddy smiles on our faces. We are overwhelmed at the wall of boxes that now line the walls over here, the work that is ahead of us, and the new routine that awaits, but we have never felt so good to be home. Whatever ends up happening here is ours. For better or worse, we will go through it together and create memories (good and bad) within these walls, and as we spend our first holidays here, we can’t help but feel incredibly grateful for the journey that led us here. Here’s to new beginnings, a crazy new journey to embark on, and our first HOUSE! WHAT?! THIS IS CRAZY!!!
Thanks so much for all your support and encouraging emails throughout this whole process. We loved hearing about your personal experiences with buying a home. Also, big thanks to our realtor and friend, Michelle Renteria. We couldn’t have done this without you! You knew exactly what our vision was from the start and we couldn’t be happier. 🙂

Stunning! As someone who has purchased many-a-home, I can tell you that the whole time you are going through the process you experience ups and downs; excitement and disappointment … but in the end, you realize that you are exactly where you are meant to be. I know that will be true for you <3.
