The de Leeuw Family
I've always dreamed of being able to buy our old house back. I loved living there, and I was kind of sad when mom sold the place. So when Harald and I finally saved some money, we took out a small loan and were able to buy the place in SimsVille.
I still love it here, and I have to say that our old apartment never really felt like home as much as this place does. I can tell Harald really likes this place as well.
As much as we both like the place, it has a lot of potential, and since we might have more than one child, we might need some more space later on. We invited my sister, Mairi, over. Mairi and I don't have much contact, but she's an architect so she seemed like the perfect person to contact.
She got what we wanted; like a bigger kitchen, and maybe an extra floor, but the numbers she came with were a lot higher than we expected. So after her visit, Harald and I decided to wait with our plans.
Besides we still have the wedding think about, and even though mom said she would pay a part, it's still going to cost a lot of money.
We've been looking at some places but we're still haven't decided on one just yet. There's so much to take in consideration, like how many people can be seated, and is there a place to hold the reception, ... and we really don't a lot of time left.
Despite the fact that we only have 8 months left to organise the whole thing, Harald and I don't spend all our free time on planning the wedding. It's impotant to both of us to spend time together, without talking about the wedding all the time.
We both like going ice skating, and since it's winter, most icerinks are open. It's very tempting to go down there every day, but I would love a perfect wedding as well, so I have to make choices.
As much as we both love ice skating, we're not very good at it, but it's still a lot of fun!
- At the moment I really have no idea where these two are going to get married. Their date is set for August 2020, so I can say they will have nice weather, which means I can do the wedding outdoor, but I haven't found (or build) the perfect location yet. I've made the guestlist and I know what dress she will be wearing :)
- I always planned for Elisa to eventually move back to her childhood home, and redo it a little bit. I can't put up kids as an excuse for it, since her ideal family size is 1, but his is 3, so we'll see how many they eventually end up with :)
- Mairi Wagmans really is Elisa's sister, but there's a huge age difference between the 2 of them, since Elisa is from a later relationship. Mairi moved out to university before Elisa was even born, and they hardly have any contact. I can say though that the Wagtmans family will be attending the wedding :)
