The Secret Project

The secret project.

So by now, a whoooole lot of you know exactly what this ‘secret project’ is.

Turns out, we suck at secrets 😜

Anyways… *drumroll please maestro* …
We are on our way to being first time house owners!

I didn’t want to say anything earlier, just because the whole process wasn’t super finalized and there were still some questions and formalities but now we’ve talked with the seller, looked into papers and are working on getting it signed over to us and since most of you know anyways, I figured I might as well start typing ‘the house’ rather than ‘the secret project’ 😏

The opportunity to buy this house came up last year but since we weren’t sure of our plans and how long we’d be in Europe, it didn’t happen for us and we knew it wasn’t the Lords will just then.

I know I’m closer to my parents now then I ever was way over in Holland, but I still wanted to be in the same area as them to a point and the house is a five-minute drive away and the seller was now ready to sell, so… it looks like we’ve found our starter home πŸ˜‰

It needs ‘love’, as a cousin so wisely phrased itπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹

It’s a fixer upper for sure but since we know the seller to a point, they gave us permission to begin construction, or more like, DE-construction, before we’d officially transferred all the needed papers and since Mike has no patience, he took them up on the offer 😏

So we have been tearing out, ripping up, figuring what needs changing and what to buy first, for the past couple of weeks and it’s going decently well… but you know those home reno shows you see with a happy couple in full agreement, always?

Ya, those are fake 😜

It will be getting an almost complete renovation and ideas are flying and yes it will be lots of work and stress and decisions but it is exciting to be able to make it our own and we’re just thankful a house in our price range and the area we were interested in, came up and we have the summer to work on it and a place to stay while we do so πŸ˜‰

So, that’s ‘the secret project’… our first house

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
