This might come out of nowhere for some of you, but Mick and I are signing on a house today - and it's supposed to close on FRIDAY!

We've kept things hush-hush since we started looking in January, especially because there can be such drama in the negotiation process, but things seem to be coming around fine and THIS LITTLE BEAUTY will soon be ours:

Workshop out back

Living room - which I plan to have more fun
optimizing than the previous tenant

Dining room

And here's the realtor's write-up:

Warm and inviting 3 bed/1 bath Cape Cod style home with new marmoleum flooring in the kitchen, hardwood floors, spacious and updated bath with custom tile, bay windows, formal dining room, wood shutters, and stone walkway. The .16 acre corner lot with R-2 zoning, private backyard, separate studio/workshop space, deck with arbor and potential for additional unit are additional features. Located close to schools, shopping, farmers' market, parks and bike path!

One final note - our family will LOVE biking and walking all the time in this area. It's in a great, flat location close to town. Additionally, the kids will be able to walk to their elementary school, middle school, high school, and even college if they want to!

Of course, I'll post more pictures after we move in and get settled - and will include other rooms in the house as well as the back yard (which feels like "the secret garden" and has trees and swings and benches and hiding places and good spots to choose from for a hammock).

Anjie & Mick, Dane & Aubrey,
Can hardly wait until our visit in June. Your home looks so inviting. We'll get to take a tour and even have a sleep-over, or two.
Were coming a day earlier than planned. Could you set up my visiting Dane & Aubrey's rooms on Wed. the 10th - helping Nancy & Inga if needed.
Time flies so I know we'll see you very soon.

Is that little outbuilding on the property at your new place? It's adorable! Your dining room looks especially sweet too.

By the way, who ever took that picture of us in Skagway should be told never to photograph women at that particular angle!
