{Today's Letters}

Wednesday, March 20, 2013


Dear Mr. Loerke, so far this week you've filled up my car with gas at 6:15am, unclogged our toilet, and folded three loads of laundry. You deserve a raise. Dear Green Living Fair, workshops about beekeeping, gardening, raw milk cheese, goats,  wool, and pottery? Reason #748 why I love the Bluegrass Sate. Dear Homemade Lasagna, you took two skillets, two pounds of cheese, and two days to eat. Thanks for being cheaper than crack. #we'readdicted Dear Timothy James (who always gets two letters), remember when we agreed to buy this house? Tomorrow we get keys. What the what.

Happy Wednesday, brave ones! Any advice for first time home buyers? We're all ears!

Awesome house! Congrats. I can't imagine how exciting that is. My husband is in medical school and it seems like it will be ages before we can do something like buy a house.

Congratulations! Whenever I move, I walk through the house and ask God's blessing on each room for it's use... For the people who will live here and for the people who come to visit... That all will be sheltered, protected and welcomed with generosity of spirit, for all the time that you live there... And then I go out and bless the garden and yard...for all that will be grown and all that enjoy that space, adults, children and pets... And then...enjoy!

I agree with Val. I even go so far as to make a cross over each door with oil! My Mom and Dad just built a house and she wrote scripture all over the studs before the sheet rock was put up. That is a beautiful house but old and it's a great idea to invite the Holy Spirit in right at the onset!
Congrats!!!

no advice, just perspective given to my husband by his hardworking grandfather when we bought our first house: "you'll always have work to do around the house"

knowing that has really helped us to not get overwhelmed when we want it all done right now.

The lasagna looking AMAZING!!
As a first time home owner as of 3 months ago, we have been getting lots of advise from family and friends, and the best thing i've retained from it all is:

"it's a life-time project, you don't need to do everything at once"

like what meg said, it is very overwhelming, but just take in the big picture, relax and enjoy!!!!

My hubby and I bought our first house last year. Take a good inventory of everything that moves, runs, or plumbs. Make sure everything's working correctly. Keep track of repairs, and keep up with maintenance. Maintenance often prevents repairs.

scripture written on the studs?

asking blessing for whatever hypothetical situation could occur within each room.

you people are nuts.

Pay early & pay often - break those mortgage payments in 1/2 & pay extra. Live within your needs rather than your wants.
