La Maison

To say that this has been a good week is an understatement. We finally got the keys to our new home,  seven long frustrating months after our offer was accepted. But we hung in there and wouldn't give up on it. Seeing the house again after so long was a bit nerve-racking, but I very quickly remembered why we fought so hard for it. It's going to be great! There's some work to be done on it, so we won't be able to move in until the end of May - but at least it's ours now, eh?! Have lovely weekend amigos!

  1. It seems like a lovely place. I remember when I lived in the UK, the stress of waiting for the contracts to be exchanged several months after the offer was accepted. Long, but worth it in the end. Good luck with all the exciting stuff to come now.
