Hi there! How is your Monday going? Did you have a good weekend? We had a pretty eventful weekend trying to find a place to live in Milwaukee, and the good news is, we found one! We have gone back and forth for months trying to decide whether we wanted to buy a house or rent. Our biggest challenge was that we wouldn’t be able to fly down to Milwaukee ahead of time to see the houses in person. So you can imagine how nervous we were to buy a house without looking at it first! Actually, last week we put an offer and a counter offer on a house we really liked but in the end it didn’t work out. And, honestly I think it was for the best. Because, right after our plan fell through with that house, an amazing house to rent popped up in the same neighborhood! It was exactly what we wanted with beautiful hardwood floors, tons of big windows, a front porch and a fireplace. I guess there were a ton of people trying to rent this place, but miraculously we got it! The above picture doesn’t really do it justice but I wanted to have something to show you!
It is such a relief to now have a place to live in Milwaukee. It is easier to start planning our future there now that we can picture the house we will be living in, and the neighborhood we will be spending time in. I feel so lucky that we were able to find a place to live in this specific neighborhood because it is very similar to the area we lived in when we were in Spokane. We can walk to fun cafes and restaurants, and the neighborhood is beautiful and historical.
I can’t wait to share pictures with you once we move and start to settle in! I am hoping to do lots of fun DIY posts about how we choose to decorate the place.
I have a few other exciting announcements to share with you in the coming days and weeks so stay tuned!
