And just like that, we found a house-- thank you to good St Joseph, as Husband has been reading aloud his Litany at night. We went yesterday to look at three houses and this was the third--we put an offer immediately and it was accepted this morning. Perfect? No, as no house is. But we seem to have foudn in this one a combination of things we have been looking for. I can't wait to have our own things in it. The smaller space is a wonderful opportunity to further simplify our life.
