Many thanks to all who wished us well!

Morning photo pals,

Monday evening we put in an offer for a house we saw in Scotts Valley last Thursday and Sunday. We loved it, and bids were due at 9 am yesterday morning. We worked with our agent all Monday to strategize how to present the best offer possible and hopefully have a chance to actually win the crazy bidding wars that take place on every house for sale in the San Francisco Bay area these days. We tried to be cautiously optimistic, but as yesterday slipped by with no word we started to assume we had lost another potential home.

Well. at about 6 pm Carol heard a knock on our door, she opened the door and our agent's husband, who is also an agent and showed us the house on Thursday shouted "congratulations'', presented her with a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of flowers and a container of jelly beans. I came into the room hearing the commotion and seeing my wife Carol shedding tears of joy.

We now have a home, a beautiful home that we can't wait to move into. It's been a rough 6 months, but we couldn't be more excited about the future.

All the best,


P.S. Our new home: check out the video link for a nice tour of it.
