Big News From The Ellsworth's

No, we aren't having a baby yet!! We bought our first home on Monday!! Jon and I have both been wanting to get into a home while the prices are great. Plus we want to stop paying rent. We have been working with our realtor for the last month and we finally found our new home. Our place is in Gilbert on Higley and Ray Road if that means anything to those around Arizona and are familar with the crossroads. It is brand new place with 3 bedrooms, a library/den, 2 1/2 baths, a beautiful kitchen (thats what I like most). The home is wonderful and Jon and I are so excited! We are working on closing the end of this month which means we will probably move in the beginning or mid April. I am very sad to leave the area we are at now because of the wonderful friends we have around us in our ward. However, our lasting friendships will hopefully last even when we do move away. We will all have to keep in touch and continue seeing each other often. We are so excited to have our own place and do great things with it!

John just broke the news to me yesterday. Happy for you...sad for us:(

The home sounds absolutely beautiful, and I'm really happy that you have such a wonderful opportunity. There's nothing like owning your own place.

For as friendly and kind as the two of you are, I have no doubt that you'll make lifelong friends wherever you go.

Know that you'll be missed greatly, but thanks to the blogs, we'll be able to keep tabs on each other so much easier.

That is so exciting you guys! I can't wait to own our own home and do fun things with it. I have a big creative outlet that I think owning my own home will be an excellent place for it.

Yes, blogs are wonderful and we will all be able to keep in touch even though you're moving away. This ward will miss you guys though!
