11 Days and Counting

We have access to our new home in a mere 11 days and we are PSYCHED!  Here are a few pictures (from the original MLS...obviously you know the front as it is our new header, but here are some inside/yard pics)...

Backyard (tiered former grape arbors to the left, swings to the right, & bench swing by patio)
Family Room (gas log fireplace)
View from Family Room looking at Kitchen
Eat-in Kitchen Area
Kitchen (WITH pantry & island)
Loft Bedroom (to be used as a guest bedroom & craft room)
Front Bedroom (Cole's Room)
Formal Dining Room
Back Porch/Deck

Not pictured is Vera's room (painted a pale periwinkle), our master bedroom (painted the same color as Cole's room), and the laundry room.  It is pretty huge (2,731 sqft compared to our 1800 sqft currently) and has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.  Basically it is far too nice for us to be able to afford, but the owners of this home are some of the most gracious people we have ever met and are allowing us to lease their awesome home for the next two years.

Cole is already taken with the pair of swings in the backyard PLUS the bench swing on the patio area.  I love that it is a ranch plus loft setup as it makes raising young kids a bit easier not running up and down steps like a crazy person.  And did I mention the his and hers closets in the master?  Or that the loft closet is the size of Vera's current bedroom?  We are also eager to have a garage again :-D

The neighborhood is just as perfectly adorable as the home...Charleston-style architecture with a cute park in the center, complete with swings, a mere 2 doors down from our place.  We also get to live a short walk from Cole's friend, Hayes (and Hayes' beautiful mom, Meredith)!  And now we are two miles closer to Darcy and her crew :-D

The only downside to moving is that we are leaving our awesome neighbor and fellow peds resident, Drew :-(  But he should feel invited to come over to our new place ANY TIME!
