So... great news! Nathan and I found an awesome home in Northfield!! We've been searching for over 6 months now (going back and forth between deciding to stay in Red Wing or move somewhere in between both of our jobs), so knew it was "the one" when we stepped into it.

Best yet? The sellers didn't counter (and believe me, we put an offer low enough, expecting at least a little negotiating!) so we were able to lock the evening we made the offer. It allowed us to lock in at a ridiculously low rate -- the rates in the last two days have already jumped 3/8%.

Super excited to make the move! Now... just to find time to do it all (Audit, last minute budget changes & year end at work, Finn Sisu's busy time, and trying to log 70 miles/week... and that was before trying to coordinate all of this paperwork/inspections/move stuff!! I honestly don't know where I'll find the time...). I think it'll all be worth it in the end. I'm excited about the prospects of having more of an endurance community in Northfield, and it seems like a really fun small town. I'm a little scared of the extra commute, but perhaps it'll force me to simplify my life a little bit (which would be a good thing!!).

Moving date: Jan 21st. Anyone available? :)
