We Signed The Lease

Oh, my God, you wouldn't believe how great this landlord is, and how wonderful the house is.

Listen to this. He's letting us move in a week early. We don't have to start paying rent until September 1, but we can start moving in right now.

On his part, he's so thrilled to be having academics as his tenants he couldn't stop talking about it. Also! He plans to put in central air!

Also, the house is just beautiful. Built in the late 1940s, on an acre of wooded land, wooden floors, original molding, original kitchen fixtures, original windows... and within walking distance of the university.

There's this little wrought iron, glass-topped table and chairs outside, under the trees. Also original.

And a working fire-place. And built-in bookcases. And so many windows.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who made this possible. Oh my God.

All y'all will probably get sick of all the photos over the next few weeks! :)
