We will be moving to Roanoke, Virginia early in August so Garren can begin his new job.   I have posted here a couple photos of our new home.  

It is in a nice little old neighborhood about 3 1/2 miles from Garren's office.  The home itself is a nice little old home on a little plot of land.  It needs some work on the inside (though not much, and nothing vital), so I'm sure little projects will keep us occupied for some time. 

We feel like the timing worked out very well for us.  We never could have purchased a home if not for the severe market downturn which pressed the seller to make concessions he likely wouldn't have had to make in housing climates of yore.  

Needless to say, we're very excited!
