A Year Ago

I was officially handed the keys to my brand new house. I became a home owner. I am floored that a year has already passed. It is insane to look around at the differences in the neighborhood. We have made some friends and like the part of town we are in. The kids LOVE having their own room and having a place to go out and ride their bikes. They have also made friends with the neighbors and their dogs (since we don't have one of our own).

Our house is a home. It is a warm, comfortable place for us all to enjoy as a family. It is so nice having a place of our own, a place that we don't have to worry about renewing a lease or think about moving!!

A year a huge investment was made! And what a great investment not just for me but for our family!

Home ownership is the best! Right after we closed on our home we found out I was pregnant with H. Just like you did, and having a family in the house makes it even more precious.

Very happy for you Steph. I think it is great that you have a beautiful home. One day I would love to get a house, but with this economy the way it is ... ugh!!

Owning your own home is a lot of work, but totally worth it!! I've stayed in nicer houses (with relatives, etc) but I always want to come back to my HOME. It's awesome and I'm so proud of you!
