So Close....


And yet so far.
We won't be walking through this gorgeous front door this weekend after all.


Because the bank couldn't get their ish together this week,
our closing on our new house isn't until next week.

{sigh}

Color me not surprised.

However....
a view such from my living room window such as this...

{our new backyard...click twice to enlarge, it's gorgeous!}


is sooooooo worth waiting for!

HERE
for a tour of the whole house!

Happy Weekend!

Oh, that's a shame. I'll be praying that everything goes well this week so you can close on yoru house. God will be with you on this journey. I am sure of it! :)

The Green Pea said...

So sorry Anne, I live in CA and just about everyone that is buying a house around here has the same story. I think bands are being careful and maybe not always being straight up front about the time it takes to get things ready and closed. You have a Happy Weekend! Good hopes from, sandi

Lisa said...

:( I am sorry! I know this stinks! Hope you get in soon!
Hugs, Lisa

Sue said...

Everything happens when it is supposed to! I LOVE your yard. Out here in CA, even though we have awesome weather, our lots are like the size of a postage stamp! You must be thrilled, I wish you the best!

Take care, Sue

Prior said...

Stunning view! I know you are dissappointed. Hey, maybe we will have a cool spell next week. (I can always hope) Can't wait to see you making it your own! Lezlee

Linda @ A La Carte said...

It is worth waiting for. I know when we bought this house they kept changing things and I was sure we would never close...we did and spent the night in sleeping bags on the floor! Just had too! Moved the bed the next day and have been here ever since. Next week you will be so happy!

Shelia said...

I'm sad for you Anne! But it is going to happen! Maybe there's a reason that you're not aware of. But you'll be in there soon! :) Keep smiling and just go over and take more pictures!!
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

Beth Leintz said...

I'm sure you're disappointed by the delay, but you'll be in a making a new home before you know it.

That is some great tree- it looks like it was made for climbing.

Jill said...

It will be here before you know it! I'm happy for you two!

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Can't wait to see the whole house! If the tree and the door are any indication, it's gonna be a treat and I know you'll have a ball decorating it.

Theresa said...

Don't let it get you down Anne, that backyard is definitely worth the wait! A couple of trees or a daybed under that tree looks like the perfect place to relax! Have a great weekend! Theresa

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

The banks are taking longer and longer now to put a loan together. I hate to see what happens if the real estate market gets busy again. keep in mind that all good things are worth waiting for! hugs, Sherry

T's Daily Treasures said...

Good things come to those who wait! You'd think the banking folks would want to make it work out sooner than later. It'll all be worth it. The possibilities are endless with change. How exciting and wonderful! Best wishes, Tammy

trash talk said...

Just look at it as more time to purge and pack. All in God's perfect timing...patience my friend.

Farmgirl Paints said...

It is worth waiting for. Went back for the tour again. Such great details...love those transom windows. So excited for you!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Anne,

Sorry it wasn't to be this weekend, but will be even more exciting when you do move in.
Such a beautiful big tree, and will be lovely sitting under that reading a book.

Have a happy weekend
hugs
Carolyn

Creative Ambitions said...

Anne... it will be here before you know it... but I know how excited you are!! Love the view!

Jaime Haney aka ArtsyFartsy.Me said...

oh you know it is so worth waiting for! that door is pretty amazing! Is that tree a live oak?

Jan Vermillion-Thomason said...

Ah, man, i can feel your disappointment mingled with your excitement for next week:( :)
you will be spending your first night in your house before you know it!
need the barn?
painting party?
pickup truck?

thinkin' about ya, jan

gretchen said...

We have the very same thing going on.
A letter of approval back on June 6th...then the bank suddenly needs something more.
Then oh, wait! we need this and this and that signed and could you also get us those? Even though we have already sent it weeks ago?
We're hoping for only two more weeks...or we are going to rent the house from the seller who's also stuck in this bank-merry-go-wrong.
I know it will be so worth it when it's over, it's just taking so damn long!
good luck with yours!

Jaime Haney aka ArtsyFartsy.Me said...

oh Anne, I just read another older post of yours called White Wednesday... Where my heart lies posted November 2009 and you talk about dreaming of a white farm house of your own someday. That dream has come true! and look how long you've already waited... this one week will be a snap compared to the time you've already put in :) Just wait! (that's what I'm always telling my 4 year old son, ha ha)

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Sorry it didn't happen this weekend but at least it's happening. I know, easy for me to say. You are blessed to have a new (old) home ;) Don't get me started on banks. Perhaps spend the weekend making of lists of all the projects you're going to do!!!
xo~Tracie

Jamie said...

Privet and Holly said...

Hi Anne ~
Just remember, it
will ALL be that much
sweeter, for the waiting.
And, you are going
to be that much more
ready by the time you
move in.....
Wanted to tell you
that the beautiful
Husky that you noticed
on my post belong's to
my parent's neighbors.
She is a four year-old
named Mischka and she
and Kate had a ball
running around together!
Love ya, Husky mama!
xx Suzanne

Megan Chamberlain said...

I am sorry that you can't move this weekend. I hope everything gets sorted out for you.

Theresa said...

Well, as you said, it will be worth the wait:) Enjoy your weekend! HUGS!

Whimsey Creations said...

I know you're disappointed but hey, what's one more week in the scheme of things, right? You'll get there!!

Polly said...

The whole real estate process can be so annoying, can't it! It's probably worse these days with all the economic issues. Always a glitch, and always a hold-up. Hang in there, girl! It will all come together and soon you'll be in your sweet farmhouse filling it with love! Thinking of you!!

Raised In Cotton~Carol said...

Oh Anne~I wish sometimes we could go back to the days of a simple hand shake when a deal needed to get done. But alas THAT VIEW~breathtaking and soon it will be yours to behold everyday~ Sending all my blessings,
Carol

Alice said...

Oh no, what a HUGE let down! But like you said, it is so worth the wait. What a view!!!

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Oh girl,

I remember the horror of the real estate business so well. The banks NEVER have their s together. If they do, the title company doesn't. Then you get to closing & there is a surprise on the papers, or the owners forgot to bring the keys. Yes that did happen once. The buyer broke out in tears! But it's like childbirth, once it's over you forget the pain. Just be happy you didn't try to sell yours at the same time & coordinate the closes so that both parties could take possession at the same time. We always had to do that cuz we're poor. Cannot wait for you to move in. You'll be working your magic 5 minutes in. Love that yard. The whole damn cottage, it's so Twig! Remember, I've got my scraper & 3 little slaves who can't wait to play with Auntie Anne. Can't wait to come visit for the first time. Don't work too hard. Thanks for the birthday wishes. Lisa

Linda said...

Oh Anne...been there...hope the bank gets their ish together SOON! XO

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Oh Hon, so sorry. But glad you aren't surprised. Seems things like this, just dangle out in front of us... For too long... Teasing us, with their closeness... Then slipping farther into the future.

But soon... Soooooooooooon... You will be there! Joy!!!!!!

Anne Marie said...

the suspense!! more time to shop for the inside of the house Anne!

xo+blessings,
Anne Marie

Itchin' Stitchin' said...

Keep your head up - I know how hard it is (especially since we are going through a situation very close to yours)! Hopefully it won't be a long wait - and it is a gorgeous house.

Olive Cooper said...

Oh goodness, I can see a bench or a nice swing near that massive tree. Hang in there Darling one as closing is never fun but always worth the wait. hugs♥olive

p.s. I will definitely not pray for patience for you, I learned not to do that years ago for me!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

You must be going crazy! That is the hardest part of all...trying to have patience when you are so excited. I guess you just have to keep yourself as busy as possible and your mind occupied. Can't wait to hear the news of the day when it is all yours!~Hugs, Patti

*The Beautiful Life* said...

That IS some backyard!! :)

Maybe this "extra" week will give you time to just b-r-e-a-t-h-e more than you might have if you were moving in this weekend?

You'll have a lifetime to enjoy the new place... this additional week will soon be just a faded memory. ;)

Ruth

Michelle May said...

Oh the banks are about to drive everyone crazy right now! First they can't give you money fast enough and now they don't want you to have any. Ding dongs! Hope all goes well for next week. Indeed the view and the house are truly worth the wait.
xx, shell

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

Bummer, Anne! But I'll be praying that the week just flies by for you and you'll be signing those papers before you know it. THEN you'll walk through that beautiful front door and breath a sigh of relief....because....you'll be home.... :)

TheSmithHotel said...

Camped out on the floor for a week waiting for the bank to close the loan.....All our stuff was sitting in the moving van! We had to keep going to the laundry mat to wash the 2 changes of clothes we had....eating on the floor....sleeping on the floor....plus my folks were there too to help us move. No toys for the kids to play with....I feel your pain!

what an incredible disappointment it must be. Sorry it did not happen for you. It sure seems worth the wait-
best of luck in your new home...

Tammy said...

Hi Anne! Sorry you didn't get into the house as planned...I remember when I sold my house 7 years ago. we went through 5 different closing dates before it finally happened...it can be very frustating... but it all worked out for the best...I was moving to a rental that I lost out on because of the first date change but then I got a better/cheaper place in the end...so it does all happen for a reason and the good Lord is watching out for you! :-)
Hang in there!
BYW...Love that backyard!
Tammy :-)

Just breath...
Love

Fearless Nester said...

I adore your white picket and hope you can enjoy your unexpected time waiting as just a little more time to dream about the big move. Pretty soon you'll be happily stepping right over the threshold of that gorgeous front door! ~Lili

cityfarmer said...

I know we both breathe the mantra "everything happens for a reason"

sometimes we find out why ... and then again ... not

I know you better than to think you'd be knocked down by this one ...
not my little fiona!!

Anne said...

Everything in its own time. Have patience and remember to breathe. When you get a chance, please drop by and see me. I have a little something for you:)
