"Home is the nicest word there is." -Laura Ingalls Wilder
On November 14, 2017 my husband and I signed the papers necessary to join an elite group of people: those who have achieved the American Dream of owning a home (and of course the debt that goes with it). We were ecstatic. After all, we had put in our first offer on the house over 4 months prior. We faced many hurdles but in the end we got our house, our first home.
Our house was built in 1900 and is part of a beautiful little beach community in Virginia. The house has a lot of great features like original hardwood floors, beautiful staircases, chandeliers, and neat little details all over the house. The house needs some love and care, and we look forward to the adventures we will have as we fix it up. I will be recording the adventures on this blog, complete with pictures. To everyone else it may just be a house, but to us it's home.
