Couple finds a note from the previous owners of their house and it’s the cutest

Alex and Jess Monney | Twitter

Alex and Jess Monney, a married couple from California, were planning to start anew with their bathroom renovation when cute “ghosts” from the past, aka the previous owners of their house, left them a quirky note.

The note reads: “Hi! We’re the Shineki’s! We remodeled this bathroom summer 1995. If you’re reading this, that means you’re remodeling the bathroom again,” the note reads. “What’s wrong with the way we did it?!?!?”

Mr. and Mrs. Shineki’s pet rabbit also had a special message, too:

Alex never met the previous owners before, but according to reports from news outlets that have covered the story, this is what he’d like to tell the couple:

“Your bathroom, and home, is lovely. It has given us a lot of beautiful memories and we can’t wait to raise our little baby girl here. Sorry we’re changing the bathroom, but the shower is too small for me to fit in (I’m 6′ and my wife is 5′). Thank you for the amazing surprise!”

If you’re wondering what the Shinekis’ bathroom model was like, here it is:

A couple of netizens also shared how they would also find mementos from the previous owners of their house:

Alex Monney told BBC that they would also leave a note in their bathroom for the future inhabitants of their place. “The funny thing is the renovation was supposed to be quick. We’re expecting our first baby in four weeks, so we need to get moving on our message pretty soon,” he said.

We wonder what that new note’s gonna be like! InqPOP!/Bea Constantino.
