Today's the Day

It has been a long time since I've baked cookies.  These are an absolute favorite of ours and I made them to gift to our builder.  Yes, we have chosen our builder, have our house plan and today signing the contract.  I can't even begin to tell you how much we have missed being in our own home.

.....and yes we are still uncertain about so many things but will push forward with this dream we've had ever since purchasing our property over two years ago.

This has got to feel good! Have you already done all the work (choosing the carpets, countertops, cabinets, paint, appliances, etc., or is the fun just beginning? When we were going through all that I felt like it was my full-time job!
