a new home?

today we'll be looking at two more houses, and then taking a trip back to one we looked at on saturday (we love this one, we can't stop thinking about it!).

it's really hard to know which houses we should be looking at. we've scouted out the website,and found a few more that look nice (these are the one's we'll be looking at today). but as long as they don't look like that 3rd house we checked out last time, i'll be happy.

hope you have a happy day today! enjoy the sunshine.

a new home?

so we went house-hunting.
it was fun and stressful and romantic and totally terrifying.
but mostly it's exciting.

we've looked at three so far (all in downtown hamilton).
1#: beautiful brick exterior, nice interior, bad neighborhood.
2#: gorgeous interior, homely exterior (no pun intended...), good neighborhood.
3#: quite terrible in general. in fact, we were keeling over with laughter as we toured it, because it was so terrible that being optimistic was hilarious. not to mention the surprise child in one of the beds...

so far we can't stop thinking about #2...
it's a great size for us. it is 2.5 stories, has beautiful floors, with a new kitchen, a lovely porch, and an awesome loft (kevin loves that part)....3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and big beautiful windows.

but we'll be looking at three more on wednesday.
who knows if this is even the right time for us...
so pray for us as we consider it.
we'll keep you posted.

today feels like spring.

i can feel spring. it’s here. there is a strong wind outside, but this time it’s a warm wind. the sidewalks are rushing with water from the melting snow, and the grass is peeking through. the air feels so clean, and i feel so refreshed. i am thankful for sunlight, and for spring weather.

here are some pictures of spring at redeemer...
