How shocked were we to get a call from our Realtor last night telling us that our last and final bid went through! Amazing! So that is the little photo of it above. It doesn't do it justice. It is a little brick colonial in a cul-de-sac and so cute inside. The owners really loved their home, like we did ours, and I will be stepping in with little to do, a bit of paint and a fence only. How awesome!
There are lots of things about the house I like and things I'll eventually change, but I'm so thrilled that we have a nice kitchen (double ovens!) that is off of the family room. So, we can all hang out together, even when I have to do the laundry or cook. Oh! Laundry! The home will come with a set of brand new front loading washer and dryer!! WOOO HOOO!
We envision a cute little patio off the back door to grill out and watch the kiddos play. I'm thrilled!
If that wasn't enough of a surprise, Sydney kept her pants dry again last night!! WOW! Holy cow!
Keep your fingers crossed for us. We've won the bid, but they still have to have their bank accept the short sale terms.

It is a beautiful home! We drove through Aldie yesterday on our way out of town and it is such a charming place. Like a smaller version of Middleburg, a place I LOVE! I hope the bank paperwork goes smoothly.
