Eight years ago today you and your husband bought your first home.
You closed on the house and loaded up your two vehicles with a mattress, clothes, and a cooler, because, well, you did not have a fridge yet. Included in your possessions was your new puppy who also seemed excited to spend the first night in your new home. You were starting so many adventures, from a new home to a new fur baby, not to mention that you had just received the news that you were pregnant with your first son. Your lives were changing in so many big ways and big you had no idea what we were getting into.
Obviously, much has changed in the eight years since that time. From not only the birth of your first, but also your second, son, to understanding all of the responsibilities that are included in being a home owner, your lives are such a part of your house that you can hardly remember what life was like on that moving day. At first, you were so nervous about the responsibility, you were actually a little nauseous, thanks to the all day morning sickness you was blessed with. You also remember that you were mad because you were pretty sure that you would no longer be able to button any of your pants. In spite of the stress and nerves, however, you do remember how excited you was about the life you and your husband were starting to build in our new little home.
You are thankful for all the memories, love, and security you have had within these walls and you are so proud of the home you have made within this house, but you know that it was a definite learning curve. From understanding what kinds of work you could take care of yourself, to knowing when to call a plumber, an electrician, or another service provider, you feel as if you have learned a lot. And while few would say that home ownership is easy, it is most often worth the effort.
