New House Pics

“I can't believe we live in such luxury!”- Addy

 

We moved on Saturday and that about sums up how we all feel about our new house. I can't even tell you how thankful we are for our new place. There are still a few things to unpack, but it already feels so much like home. We love it here!!!! I'm trying not to hold on to the feeling that it's too good to be true. Right now I'm just taking the blessing and savoring it.

 

We decided to move because we really wanted a yard for the kids to play in. We also wanted a place that would be more easily accessible for wheelchairs, and somewhere that would feel a little more like a home. Our old place was a big blessing and it completely suited our needs for our first year here in Ukraine, but now it's time to settle in and make a home for ourselves. We just couldn't see that happening in our old place.

 

When we walked in to this new house for the first time I could already picture where we would put the Christmas tree. I was sold.

 

It's a rental and it costs the same amount as our old place. At the old place we were paying for location. We were almost across the street from MTU and super close to the city center. That was important for learning our way around our city. At this place we are paying for the quality of the house and the outside space. Our location isn't as awesome, we can't just walk to the center, but the location isn't bad either. We are still just a five minute walk to the bus stop and there is a small bazaar about 10 minutes away, by foot. We can get veggies there, meat, dairy products, bread. My language skills will be challenged, since the nearest supermarket is a bit further, but the food at the bazaar is fresh and good, so we're happy.

 

Here are the pics, as promised!

All of the property up to the white wall is ours! Oh boy, time to get our garden on!

Our room

The kids' room. The couch turns in to a bed that the girls sleep on.

Welp, that's about it.

    Like I said on Facebook, I am still grinning about living in a house, after over a year. πŸ˜€ Ah, but going back and digging it up makes me want to redo the video, now that we’re more settled in.

    Oh, and if you’re really interested in my story (sorry to babble here on your blog), this really old post kind of explains why I love a house so much. Apartments, apartments, apartments… smaller apartment, HOUSE!
