It's happening

One of my new year's resolutions is coming true: we are moving!  Our new residence will be in beautiful Charlottesville, VA, with rolling hills, views of the Blue Ride Mountains, delicious restaurants, and breweries and wineries galore.

We found a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house right in the heart of C-ville.  It has pretty much everything we were looking for:

-Right in town
-3 bedrooms
-More than one bathroom
-Gas stove
-Washer & dryer
-Yard with the ability to have a grill
-Workspace for tools and bicycles
-About 1200 sqft

It was the second house we visited and we are really excited.  We have wanted to move out of NoVA for about 3 years and we took our time finding the next place to live.  The three years of wishing gave us plenty of time to prioritize the things that are important to us and we firmly believe that Charlottesville and this home will satisfy our desires.

So you wanna see it?

Isn't it cute?!  It's in such a nice neighborhood too and we are maybe 7 minutes away from Whole Foods (which is a huge plus if you know us).  So that is the only picture I have right now but believe me, there will be many more.  

So here is the general layout of this super cute home.  

First floor has the master bedroom w/ adjoining bathroom and a good sized closet.  There is a small-ish living room that opens next to a dining area which is right next to the kitchen.  The kitchen was a big selling point for us for several reasons.  One, gas stove.  Enough said.  It also has a dishwasher and the cabinets have pull out drawers which I think is great.  Next to the dining area is a sliding glass door to the deck that looks out to the backyard.  

Downstairs there's a second living room (woot woot!), a mud room and then a large unfinished portion.  The unfinished portion has the washer and dryer and a lot of room for storage, which is great because Husband has a lot of tools.  And it gives us a safe place to store our bicycles.  

Top floor, there are two good sized bedrooms (one of them will become my sweet office) and a bathroom.  One of the bedrooms has a small room attached to it - interesting but I think it'll be great space as a reading nook or a storage place.  

So there's a LOT to do in preparation for the packing, getting our utilities set up (mental note to make some phone calls tomorrow), and changing our address.  

That is the biggest thing happening in my life right now.  Does anyone have any tips for moving or getting to know a new town?  

Love & Hugs.
