It's ours.

This is ours.  Officially ours.  Oh my.  It's ours.
I just cannot believe it.  It's ours.  This is our new home.

(Huge) House, (huge) garage,  (huge) barn, nearly 30 acres of farmland and woods in the same southern Maine coastal town we've been living in.  

It's an 1880s estate. We're the 2nd owners. 

It's a house I fell in love with 6 years ago when I first moved here. Only 1/2 mile away.

It's ours.

I've been wanting to tell you about it, I have so much to share. We've been at this for months, never quite sure if it would happen.  

But it's ours now. 

There's so much to share- pictures, stories, plans. Perhaps animals? (Adrian wants 2 horses and a giraffe). I want to tell you about it all.  There is and will be so much to tell.  There's so much ahead of us, but I'm excited.  I promise to bring you along on this journey of restoring this old farm and farmhouse.  I cannot wait to start. 

But for now, I'm still in shock.  I'm writing this with tears of happiness and disbelief streaming down my face.  My heart is pumping a million miles an hour and I have butterflies spinning circles in my belly.  There is a ginormous smile on my face. I just cannot believe it's ours. We have a farmhouse and farm.

I promise I will share more as soon as I compose myself.  I'm just so incredibly thankful. Thankful beyond words.  A dream that I always thought was unattainable has come true.

It's ours.

  8. You are just such a farm girl, I think that house must have been calling to you for the past six years. And when it heard your heartsong in return, magic was bound to happen. What an amazing home for you and your husband and children and their spouses and children. It will be the place where memories are made and where everyone comes 'home' to. Congratulations, friend.
