Anderson and I decided several months ago that it was time to escape from our apartment and buy a home. Wow. We had so many choices and decisions to make. First of all, did we even want to stay in Jacksonville? If so, what part of town? Did we want to buy an existing place or build a new home? We’ve prayed for wisdom a lot over the last few months.
And finally…
drum roll please…
we’re officially homeowners!

We are so excited we can hardly stand ourselves, and we’re having a blast planning for our future family. I’m not sure where that future family will go though, because we’ve officially claimed all four bedrooms! Who knew we’d decide not to be complete nomadic hippies?! Ever since we met, we’ve talked a lot about having roots and being grounded in a place we love. For now, that place is Jacksonville. So we’re excited to plant our roots here, then sit back and see what happens as God continues to control our life together.
