A wee break from wedding details

A wee break from the wedding details to bring you some exciting news! We just bought this 100 year old converted church!!!

It's on a quarter of an acre,

It has a lovely little barn,

ceilings that soar and hard wood floors that go on for miles,

the sweetest little kitchen to inspire getting back to the table,

a wood burning stove and single pane windows mean my darling is going to split a lot of wood this winter,

and the perfect sized yard to create a magical garden for our magical bunny to frolic.

We picked up our keys on Wednesday and immediately started tackling the overgrown yard. I saw a whole new side to my love, the rugged lumberjack side, so hot! We feel so blessed to have this beautiful place to call our own. It's such an amazing feeling to own your own property. I've never been so excited to rake grass! We'll be renting out the townhouse so if anyone knows anyone who needs a beautiful victorian rental property in Belleville, let me know!

Thanks again to our beautiful families for their endless love and support!
