All In The Family

I feel like I have created a monster with this blog! But it is a great way to keep all of my ideas in one place that I can reference if needed. I am having so much fun just thinking of all of the projects we are about to jump into with this buy. We are still getting all of the last minute paper work together but everything is running smoothly. We are planning on closing and moving in at the end of the month and we are ready! Scott asked me yesterday if we can start packing. Umm, yes!

One of the biggest selling points to this house is that is in a very established neighborhood that I have been familiar with my entire life. Our new house is two blocks from where my grandparents  and great aunts lived when I was growing up. I have so many memories of my family in this neighborhood. The original owners of this home have past and their children are in the process of having the estate sale. Below is an excerpt from an e-mail of the late owners daughter.

We were going through some things today at my Mom's house and we found an old book called, "Jesus, The Prophet" that Judge and Dene had given my parents in 1959.  They wrote in the front of it before giving it to my parents.  I thought that was so neat since their grand daughter is buying my parents home.  I will try to remember to bring the book and show you if we see each other at the title company on the day of closing.  It is such a small world and it sometimes seems to get smaller and smaller.  My parents thought a lot of the Fites.

Isn't that crazy!?!?!? Not that fact that they knew them but that something my Mimi and Grandfather took the time to write inside is in this house....from 1959! I completely believe that our loved ones are near us even after they pass. If it is fate or coincidence I don't know, but I believe that my grandparents our with us as we start this journey.

This is a picture of my grandparents, Judge and Dene Fite, and my Lady. I love this picture so much. My mom carried this on her bouquet at our wedding.
