That's right! We are making Eagle River our official home for the next few years with the purchase of our home. We are literally 4 blocks from our current rental. We love the neighborhood and are excited to continue to deepen our relationships here in Alaska. For those you in the lower 48 - I know you were all hoping we'd be moving back soon, but that's just say that our invitation for you all to come to Alaska to visit is now extended!!
This will be my new view! I can't wait to see the sun rise over these mountains and then the brilliant colors of the evening sky.
We are also very excited to have the fenced in yard for the kids to able to safely play. Really, we don't have snow anymore - this was taken about 1 1/2 months ago. It's been so hard not to shout on 'social media' that we were buying a house - but Papa wanted to wait until things were official. Well, we closed today- Yahoo!!!
May is a crazy month to try and be moving, but the nice thing is that our rental lease is not up until the end of June. We said we'd be out by the end of May in hopes that they can get new renters in right after us - but either way - it will be nice to be able to do a few upgrades to the new house and then get serious about moving.
With evening skies like this - its affirmation that this is where we want to be. We hope you'll make plans to come see us soon!!
