Today, I left work halfway through my day. We had an appointment this afternoon that I couldn’t miss – we’d been planning for this day since the end of October.
Today, The Boy left work early and met me at our apartment. From our apartment, we made our way to the bank, preparing to complete a lot of paperwork.
Today, I signed my name more times than I can remember. That’s because, today, we became homeowners.
I haven’t written about this journey at all before now, because The Boy and I felt it better to keep everything quiet until all the paperwork was signed. At at the end of October, we made an offer on a house – an old house with gorgeous hard wood floors, an updated kitchen, and lots of space. It was the fifth house we had seen in our house hunt, and I fell in love. Soon, we found ourselves under contract for the house, and discovered just how quickly one month can go by. November was a whirlwind, and I am sure December will fly by as well.
We get the keys to our house on Saturday. I cannot wait to get in there and start figuring out where everything goes. I’m excited to have a basement, a third bedroom, a HUGE dining room, and a kitchen that we can both be in at the same time.
Buying a house was one big decision. One that I was very happy to make. I can’t wait to get into the house and really start making it our own.
