well... we searched [seriously] for a year, made six offers, went through two contracts. but it's happening! we're finally buying our first house : ) it's a gorgeous 1929 rowhouse in glover park. we LOVE the neighborhood - phil can't wait to fly our aggie flag on game day! the houses are full of southern transplants, and everyone hangs their college colors. we have a strip of stores/restaurants/bars on wisconsin avenue and are only a few blocks from the naval observatory (and the vice president's house!). there are parks and trails, and everyone has a front porch. it feels more suburban than our current area in rosslyn.
i've decided to blog about our adventure - our first house, exploring a new neighborhood, decorating, gardening, entertaining on a budget, maybe a little renovation. my wish is that it helps our families and friends back in texas feel closer. please be patient as i learn the blogging process : )
