Dreaming of Home Sweet Home

Last November Matt and I purchased 3.2 acres of land in Gretna, Nebraska.  At that point we were still living and working in South Dakota and with no real timeline for when we would be moving...we just knew that we wanted it to happen.  Its crazy to think of just how many things in our lives were up in the air just one short year ago.

Since then we have moved, grown our family by one and both started new jobs.  We have laid temporary roots in a rental home, all the while dreaming of the day when we would once again have a place to call our own.  A place to call home.

Two weeks ago (after I finally found work in a tough pharmacist market) Matt and I were able to take the next steps forward and officially signed our lives away the paperwork needed to start the building process.  To say we are excited doesn't even touch our enthusiasm.  We're going to have a home again.

Tonight on our way home from Omaha we stopped by our lot and snapped a few pictures to capture some "before" pictures...

More of our view...I'm in love

 Haha...I can't ever be serious.  I'm just so stinkin' excited!
