The beau and I are getting a house!

He and I have been talking about moving in together for some time, and while we’ve been sorting out our finances, we’ve started looking around for properties to rent. We were hoping to move in March when I found the most perfect house in the history of houses.

It’s close to the city; it has a fenced in yard; it’s incredibly spacious; it has a fireplace; it even has garage.

Which was pretty much what sold Beau.

We signed the paperwork just last weekend and I cannot even express my excitement. Not only am I getting my own space to declare my own, but that space is also his to make his own.

Which means it’s ours. And, that’s the loveliest thing of all.
