Sold!

Here's a hint about what we will soon be doing...

See all those boxes on that truck? That will be my life, all packed up, although loaded onto a slightly bigger rig.

We sold our house!

We've actually been in negotiations with the buyers for almost two weeks, and I haven't wanted to say anything until the deal was more finalized. But it looks like it's going to happen! I am so relieved, and so freaked out.

We don't have a house in California yet, because we wanted to make sure the sale of our house was certain before we committed to anything. Oh, and did I mention that we have to be out by August 28th?

God help me! (And if I'm not around too much over the next few weeks, you'll know why.)

You will love California, I think. I grew up there and there is so much to do and see. The ocean, Disneyland, mountains, deserts. Enjoy.

Congratulations! Don't fret about buying, just rent until you figure out what you really want/need. You're lucky you're going to such a great city. Good luck!

ps... I used that pic of the truck above as an 'iron-on' for my son's t-shirt (turned out really cute).

Carrie, wow! Just like my BFF who's house sold w/in 72hrs of being on the market. She has to be out by the 30th and I'm sure can completely commiserate about the about the packing thing. Yesterday she was in search for 200 boxes - yes, I said 200. eeeeek! I wish you the best!

That's wonderful about the sale, but I'm sure overwhelming at the same time! I pray that God will give you the wisdom to take each day as it comes and protect you from worry about the future!
Blessings!

So glad you were able to sell your home. We just moved cross country ourselves. It was nuts, but an advenutre. Safe travels to CA and luck finding a new abode.

Amber said...

Congratulations on your big move! We just got back from 2 months in Africa and I've been catching up on blog reading and saw your big news. Will you PLEASE let your local blog readers know when you have your garage sale? I just know it is going to be a treasure trove of finds because you have such awesome style! Good luck finding the perfect home to rent in CA!

Wishing you all the best with your new adventure - I can relate - we too had to move out of our home on short notice with nowhere to go- God organised it all for us and we had accommodation for two months before we found our home - He will provide for you too in your move. Trusting it all goes well.
