That's right! It's official! As of October we are free to head back to good ol' P-town. To sweeten the situation, Chris' company is actually allowing him to stay on with them and work independently from Portland. Isn't that amazing?! We feel so fortunate that he works with such an awesome group of people and I feel fortunate that my husband is so amazing that the company doesn't dare let him go! WIN!
So now all the fun logistics of moving get to begin. Blah. This week I started on the long process of clearing out the house and packing non essential for the next few month items. It's so crazy how much we accumulate in so little time. Starting early has been great as I found a yard sale site on Facebook for the town of Springville that has over 9,000 members on it. I've been able to sell a lot of stuff we no longer need to make some cash to put into staging the house for when we put it on the market, and hopefully, some leftover for decorating the new home!
Another great thing about this yard sale site is the treasures I find! Check out this beauty in need of a little TLC. $35! Cray cray.
That'll be a later project since the garage is now full of boxes and we'll be listing the house at the end of the month! I can't wait to show that one off in the next house.
Speaking of next houses...everyone in Portland/Beaverton/Tigard keep your eyes peeling for a diamond in the rough for us. We're hoping to find one with a big backyard and plenty of renovation work to keep us busy for years. Everyone's dream, right? ;)
And as for this house. She's been great and I'll make sure to show you some of the backyard updates we did before we take off. In the meantime we can reflect on her front yard beauty as we begin our goodbyes...
(Ignore that uncut grass...that's tomorrow's project!)
