Out with the OLD, in with the NEW!

We have been doing a lot of spring cleaning around here and things are looking nice and fresh. We are getting ready to get out of the old and into the new!For over a year now, I have been wanting to move. I have felt very strongly about it and thought of little else. Sam has wanted too, as well, but knew how much work there was to do before we could sell our house. Sam has been working so hard to get things fixed up and finished and I have been painting until my hand resembles a claw. At the beginning of February, I was looking at the MLS (a weekly, if not daily occurrence) and saw some brand new houses in Daybreak (South Jordan) that I thought were worth taking a look at. Sam and I had looked at new and existing homes in several different communities and just not found exactly what we wanted. So we went to Holmes Homes and checked out several of their floorplans. After 3 visits to the builder in 4 days, I was ready to sign the papers but Sam needed a little more time. After praying about it that day, he knew we were making the right decision and we signed the contract that week!
Our new house will be done around the beginning of June and it has been fun to check on the progress each week. Our current home is on the market and in the first week, we had 8 showings so we hope that keeps up and that we will get an offer soon! So, if you know anyone in the market for a cute bungalow in Sugarhouse, send them our way!

That is so exciting. Not to mention how much closer you will be. You will love you new home and all the space you get with it.

I'm sad to see you leave the ward, my friend, but I'm so excited for you to have a brand new house with lots of room!!
