bliss... now with monthly payments!

Today we took two
giant steps deeper into the
world of grownup-hood.

It involved a lawyer,
a banker,
a few salespeople,
a big promise to pay
and a lot of ink.

It has also involved a lot of support
over the last few weeks
from our families and our friends
who held our hands while we held our breaths
and took this big step into...

...home ownership.

This is the cute little house that we will be calling home very soon.

...and this is the amazing backyard that will soon be our garden.

Despite the gray skies when I took these photos yesterday, the day today is very bright and clear. Tonight we'll take the sustainably-grown Christmas wreath we just got from Student Action with Farmworkers and hang it on the front porch - a little flag to stake our claim.

Home!

  1. Congratulations! It is so cute and you have a whole lot of yard. That's what I miss about living in an apartment.

    Can I request some tomatoes for the new garden. I like them green.

  5. Soo excited for you! Yeah.

    Home ownership is fun, except when it isn't...you know, like when the hot water heater goes on the fritz ;-)

    Happy home-ownership!

  6. Congratulations! Owning your own home is really...like nothing else. I think it changed my entire personality, honestly. The work is never done, of course, always something to work on/fix but it's a labor of love...so worth it. (And have a fu&*%#@ great time decorating, too!)
