A New Chapter
First comes love, then comes marriage... then comes a home—sorry, no baby carriage quite yet. This past weekend, Daniel and I moved into our new home, and we couldn't be happier. I feel like everything we've gone through—every trial, every test, every minute of waiting—has boiled down to this moment, and it's so beautiful.
To be honest, the process of buying our house was fairly simple. I've heard so many horror stories of people trying to buy houses and having it just be headache after headache. We are counting this is a huge blessing for us!
While wading through the piles of stuff and unpacking one box at a time, we're focused on de-cluttering and simplifying. I can't wait to have a house that's decorated just for us, with my very own kitchen to learn to cook (finally, right?), a garage to park my car in, a yard that's our own private sanctuary, and a place—honestly—to just be myself. That all may sound so materialistic, but if you have never had any of those things to call your own, when you work so hard to finally earn them, it's such an amazing feeling. Most importantly, I'm excited to build this house into our home. Our place to entertain, to share the love, to be with each other. And eventually, our place to raise a family of our own.
This new chapter is my favorite one I've written yet.
