What a Spring!

I know, it's been a while.  A LOT has happened since my last post.  We had been thinking for a long time, that we would like to move to a highrise condo in downtown Fort Worth.  In February, Doc20 and I decided to put our house up for sale and see what would happen.  We spent a few weeks making a few repairs, painting, cleaning and de-cluttering and the house was for sale as of March 1.  We had an open house and several showings, lowered the price a bit after about 6 weeks and by the end of April we had a contract.  We found a condo we liked (on the 22nd floor) and made an offer.  We closed May 23rd on both properties and moved the next day. 

WOW!  What a spring!

We moved from a 3000 sq ft house to a 1550 sq ft condo.  Before we moved we had a big moving/estate sale and sold more that half our stuff.  It's kind of amazing how much stuff you have that isn't really needed.  We have on order several new pieces of furniture to better fit our new place, and had the Container Store come out and redo our closet with their Elfa system.  It just about tripled the amount of storage in the closet.  The kitchen has been a challenge, but I'm about to figure it out.

We now have a great view of the city and we're having a blast checking out new restaurants and shops here in downtown.

We also managed to fit in a big 3 year old birthday party for Toddler M.  He had a blast at his Cinco de Mayo party.  (He's on the left in the yellow shirt.)

We'll be going back for his little sister's first birthday in a month or so. 

She has been walking for about a month now and loves to play with her big brother.  No teeth yet, but she can gum anything!
