Home Sweet Home

Finally, after weeks of waiting...   and as of 4:30 pm this evening, Mark and I are happy homeowners!!!!!  It has been a long process filled with its fair share of struggles and bumps in the road, but each and every one of those lows led us down this crazy journey to the most joyful evening!   Our little nest is a converted Victorian double that was renovated into a single with a camel back, so it has loads of modern amenities without foregoing its old New Orleans charm.  From its gas lantern and its gingerbread architecture to its original hardwood floors, stained glass windows, and its recessed ceiling, it is just the loveliest house a girl could ever ask for!
After getting the keys, we met my mom, dad, sister, and her bf at the house where we enjoyed some pizza from Slice Pizzeria and champagne that my sister and Milton brought to celebrate our happy beginning.

I have to thank Sarah Martzolf Grossman, our realtor, with Latter and Blum.  As we faced challenges along the way during this process, she was constantly there to guide us, to assure us, and to find solutions when we thought that none remained.

Thank you for your patience my dear blogging friends.  I know that I have not been very responsive these last few weeks, but with this big day officially behind us, I look forward to checking in with all of you.  And I look forward to sharing all of our new adventures as homeowners with you.

Much love and sweet dreams!

  33. I lost most of my google reader somehow and after repopulating across the last few months came back cross your blog.

    First, congrats on the move. I'm a tad bit envious, to say the least.

    Second, the house is charming. Classic New Orleans. I'd love virtual tour!

    All the best and here's to carnival!
