Sold! To lucky number 7!

Most of you know we have had our house on the market for ~2 years. We put it on the market before we even got pregnant with London knowing that we wanted to start building a house on a lot that we purchased in a golf course community a few years ago. The past 2 years we have been through 3 realtors, millions of showings, open houses and foot-traffic through our house. Which also meant that our house had to be kept clean every day! That part was trying at times especially with two little boys and two full time jobs on the side. Aside from the painful moments, we also have a few funny stories; like the lady that wanted to bring her dog with her through the house as she previewed it. The kid who puked in the hallway during an openhouse. My pain pills from my c-section going missing. Me nursing London in the backseat of my car in the driveway during a few showing when I was on maternity leave. A realtor locking the neighbors cat in our house thinking he belonged IN OUR HOUSE. Oh the memories! ;)

Seriously, we do have very fond memories of our home. It's the only home Gavin and London have known. We will miss our little old house on Beverly. Which brings me to the subject line of this post. After 6 offers fell through, the 7th contract went through and we sold our house, closed last Friday 5/20 and moved into an apartment while we wait for the construction of our new house to be finished. We anticipate that we will be in our apartment through the end of the year and will probably be making a transition into our new house somewhere around the first of the year. Maybe we will ring in 2012 at xxxx Cxxxxx....we will cross our fingers. Our new permanent address is
xxxx xxxxxx xxxxx
Austin, Texas 78730
Please update your address books accordingly. We have a mailbox there and plan to just have our mail go to the new house rather than the apartment.

For those of you in Austin who want to find us, however, we are living at the Gables Westlake by the 360 Bridge and have a great pool. Come by for a dip this summer!
