B Lane

Our house is officially under contract!! I went from fretting about showings and keeping a clean house to now being somewhat sentimental about the whole thing. This is Tyler and I's first home together as husband and wife. When I leave for work in the morning I now smile, looking at our cute home, and I have to say the memories we made will be missed!! 

None the less, it is a blessing and exactly what we have prayer for. The day after my last post, mentioning my discouragement about our lack of showings, we actually got an offer and had a signed contract the following day. Tyler is constantly reminding me of how blessed we are and I have to agree - God is good!!

If you're curious where we will be moving to... well we are too!! No plans yet but thankfully my parents and my mother-in-law have both offered us beds if need be. We are actively searching and looking so only time will tell.

Five on Friday

What are the chances?! Just when I come back after a mini-break for summer, my favorite link-up also returns. 
Happy Five on Friday via Christina at Carolina Charm!! Here's the latest and greatest...

One | Tyler and I had our first wedding anniversary last month!! So with that and the upcoming holiday season I've been thinking about getting some pictures made! It's been one year since our wedding and over two years since our anniversary photos so I don't think they would still be appropriate for a christmas card. Time to start brainstorming.

Two | Tyler and I decided to take the plunge and purchase my first car!! It happened somewhat sooner than planned but I'm enjoying the change. My prior, grandma of a car started slowly falling apart. After one too many bills from the shop we decided to kick Betty to the curb. Best part of welcoming Bella to the family... heated seats!!
Three |  Our house is on the market, as previously mentioned. It's only been 3 weeks but we've had a decent amount of showings. It seems like a good thing, but then when nobody bites it can easily be a discouraging thing. 

Four | "She knew she loved him when 'home' went from being a place to being a person." - E. Leventhal
Aside from homes, cars, anniversaries and announcements I need to say how thankful I am for my husband. With so much change going on in our lives I am so lucky to have him as my steadfast. 

Five | Prayers for the week to come...
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. | Luke 12:48 b
For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. | 1 Timothy 6:7-8
