Living The Dream
My TH has always wanted "land". When we first moved to Orange County three years ago he suggested we take a look at properties more inland. I scoffed at the mere thought of living away from the coast and told him to forget about it. Back then, I was not at all interested. I mean, our friends and family were West of the 5 and that was where I intended on staying, ooookkkaaayyy?! (snap, snap, snap). I had a great job in Newport Beach and we didn't yet have children so why on Earth did we need a big property?

The three of us chatted about our future estate for fun, but we knew it was a few years off. That was all until the Universe answered our energy sooner than anticipated and dropped our new home right into our laps.

30 days later we were packed up and moving out of the only home our babies had ever known. We loaded up two U Hauls, a trailer and headed out to Temecula to our "Forever Estate". This is the home we will live in for the rest of our lives. This is the home we will watch our children grow up in and we will cherish for generations to come.
I am so excited/nervous for this new adventure and look forward to sharing all my new nest-a-palooza tips with you soon! Once I survive this move, I will explain how double escrows work for all you Thriving Readers who are thinking about making an upgrade in your near future. Stay tuned and get those bikini bodies ready for a long summer of nesting, wine tasting and pool lounging!
