Under Contract

8.30.2010

Well, it's official. We made an offer on the house and they accepted. We couldn't be more excited. Their timeline worked perfectly with ours. We are planning to close in May- so it will be around the time that Michael finishes here and Birmingham.
.
One fun note--- I have many childhood memories from playing at this house. They have a daughter that's my age and we were friends growing up. The house has been in their family for two generations and they are excited that it's now going to be a part of my family.
.
My wheels are turning with the things that I want to do {over time}. I am looking forward to sharing this process with you.

The house is both grand and charming. I love it! We moved into our house 9 months ago and my wheels turn every night as we slowly make it our own. We call it the 10-year project ;)

Hi! I've just recently found your blog and love it! I actually wanted to ask you how you like Birmingham. My husband and I are thinking of moving to the area in the next year or so and I was hoping to get some info from you on what it's like to live there. In particular, what are the best areas around Birmingham to live if you're just starting a family? What is the weather like during the year? Is there good shopping? Any information you could give would be so helpful :)
Thanks so much!

Stacey said...

Beautiful. I am from Mississippi. I did not grow up in Jackson, but am somewhat familiar with the area. The house looks like something in Eastover or I can't think of the other area across I-55 near the hospitals. I do love established neighborhoods with great houses and yards!
Enjoy!
