About three months ago, John and I started discussing finding a larger place to rent than the small two-bedroom apartment we were living in with our rambunctious toddler. Before I knew it, John had talked me into looking at houses to buy instead.
A few weeks later, we had a realtor, a mortgage pre-approval, several open houses and viewings under our belts… and an accepted offer on a 1920s American Foursquare! And today we finally closed on our new home.
It’s not perfect, but it’s ours!
