New Home Signed Sealed But Not Yet Delivered!

So, we signed our new home contract last week.  We picked out our brick, siding, shutters, and all the extra options we felt were necessary.  Luckily, with Big Daddy being a veteran, we were able to qualify for a VA Loan.  The main perk was, we only had to pay a fraction of the hand money that non-veterans have to pay to secure our lot and house. VA savings loan We feel truly blessed that we were able to choose a flat lot containing one acre of ground!  That may not seem like much to a lot of you, but to us, it's like 50 acres of paradise!  It was the biggest lot in the plan.  We were offered many incentives being one of the first homes to be built.  Now, we must focus on selling our current house.  We had an agent open house this week, and our realtor said it went well.  Everyone loved the house.  Now we hope that one of them will encounter a family that needs our house.  We pray that our house can be a blessing to someone else as it has been a blessing for us. 
Blessings to you,
The Queen Mama

The For Sale Sign is in the Front Yard!

Well, dear readers, the For Sale sign is officially in the front yard as of two weeks ago!  Yes, we have decided to go ahead with the selling of our home.  You thought I was at my wit's end and staying put, right?  Well, I was, until we came across a new housing plan about 3 minutes away from our small town.  What?  We are moving away from our small town, hence the name of my blog?  Well, yes and no.  Yes, we will not be directly in town, but no, we are still in a small town, even more rural.  Right across from a farm, actually, and surrounded by farmland.  So, we will still be able to enjoy all the amenities of small town living, but living in a brand new home.
We have our plans picked and the building is starting in December. With mortgage interest rates as low as they are now, we couldn't pass up the deal. Now, we just have to sell our home before the new home is finished.  Please keep us in your prayers that it does! I hope our current home can be a blessing to a family as it has been to us.  We put our heart and soul into remodeling it, (and are still finishing up trim and adding those last minute extras like decking) and I hope it can be a comfortable, happy home for the new owners!
As always, Many Blessings to you and your Family, wherever you may be,
The Queen Mama
