roots

Tomorrow, God willin' and the creek don't rise, DH and I will become bona fide homeowners.

I thought this day would never come.

All of the sacrifices we have made over the past two years (and before!) have been leading up to this moment. It is a bit surreal actually. I'm not sure that I will believe it until the keys are in my hot little hands. Maybe not even then.

I am so excited and happy and proud. I feel like this is where my family belongs. I feel like we can plant our memories and watch them grow roots. I can finally allow myself to feel s e t t l e d.

It has been no easy feat.
But it will all be worth it.

SO worth it! I'm so happy for you! We bought our first house 13 years into our marriage. I thought the day would never come, but when it finally did, all the waiting and sacrifices were so worth it. Can't wait to see pictures and help you decorate it! :D
