And…we’re back. Now, we’re not just back in Michigan, but I mean right back in the house (well, condo) we sold 4 years ago when we moved to Florida. I know, what are the chances? Right?
So, here’s the skinny, we recently moved back to Michigan and we were here for a little over 2 months. After looking at house after house and putting in a few offers, our previous Michigan home came on the market. We couldn’t believe it and because we loved that place we bought the home we sold 4 years ago! Yep, that’s right, it’s the exact same condo we sold in 2014. When we told our son-in-law, Kenny he said it’s like God saying: “Welcome home”. Ah, smile.
I love this man, he has been by my side for 36 years this Tuesday, June 26. We were young and in love and our love has grown with each and every year! Plus, he’s great at home improvements, just to name one of his many qualities. 😀
We actually wanted a particular subdivision but God knew where we should be and he waited just long enough so we would be ready to make an offer on our previous home. It is a beautiful and wonderful home on a quiet cul-de-sac. We even have the same neighbors on both sides, which is awesome! Check out the renovations we did the first time. Those renovations were pretty cool but we have some really great ideas for this makeover too. We love renovating and remodeling homes. Do you?
This condo needs about the same updates as the last time; new carpet and we’re painting almost all the rooms because our style has changed. After living in Florida for 3 1/2 years we’ve been bitten by the light and bright Florida decor and we love it! I promise we’ll be sharing our new renovations soon because we plan on getting it all done by the beginning of August when Chelsea and Kenny’s family come for a visit, so be looking for our home renovation post.
We love how God directs our steps and leads His children into some pretty fun adventures. When making big decisions, John and I are lead by peace. So, if we don’t feel God’s peace, then we take a step back, say no, or sometimes the door shuts on us, and we wait for His perfect will to unfold.
