So here we go again, moving, it’s such a pain in the rear and totally not something we were planning on doing anytime soon! If you’ve been following my blog anytime in the last 3 years you’ll know how much renovation we have completed in our current home and you may remember we just put the finishing touches on the master closet and the kitchen… both of which causes me pain to think about leaving! We have absolutely L-O-V-E-D living here in Louisville, KY, it was such a wonderful surprise for me to find out just how much we would love living here! There is so much to do, more festivals than I can ever get to in one season not to mention the Kentucky Derby, for which the celebrations go on for at least a week in advance of the actual race day. We will miss living here, but we are leaving a little something behind… our middle daughter Cassidy has transferred to the University of Louisville and will be finishing up her college education here, so we’ll be back to visit for sure!
So here are a few pictures the photographer took for the listing, most of these I haven’t shared before!
Sunroom (my favorite family space in the house)
Mudroom (super convenient with doors to both garage and front yard)
Basement (a walk-out with 10 ft. ceilings!)
And the backyard, just part of the 1.12 acres
Our move is prompted by an unexpected job offer for my Hubby and a relocation back to the state of Virginia. We moved to Louisville almost 4 years ago from Richmond, VA, but we will be moving to the Virginia Beach area which I’m pretty excited about! So right now we’re in the process of finding just the right home, you know one that’s not too big… not too small…?! That always proves to be such a difficult task, but we are certainly trying! We’re torn between buying a new home or a fixer upper or something in between the two but I’m hoping something will come on the market soon that will make us want to put a contract down on it.
In the meantime our home was just listed on the market last Thursday and we were fortunate enough to get 3 very great offers the very next day! We accepted a contract which would allow us to rent back until the end of the school year, which will be very helpful to us. So now I am focusing on packing up rarely used items, listing stuff for sale on Craig’s List, gathering small items together for a yard sale and taking stuff to Goodwill. At least I don’t have any painting or renovating work left to do so while this work is time-consuming it’s not very difficult.
So wish us luck! I hope that this transition will go as smooth as possible…
Thanks as always for stopping by… until next time!
