This has been on my bucket list uncrossed off since I started compiling things that I want to accomplish and for someone who tends to put things on a list for the pure joy of crossing things off – it’s boggling that this one doesn’t have a line threw it.
I bought my home back in October of 2010 – so the idea that 2 years of having my name on a mortgage is rather crazy. Especially since I bought it as a 23 year old who didn’t have a clue as to what was going on – which made the shopping around & then the purchasing process much more hectic than what it should have been. But the second my parent’s sent me photos of the back splash & the brick & the crazy bedroom-converted-attic I knew that I had to have it! And it seems that once I started moving boxes in, my life seemed to take a more distinct turn & things became much clearer than what they once were.
But, alas, I have an issue with putting roots down in places (I think that comes from the fact that my mom always tells us that we can go home & that our childhood bedrooms will always be there for us – so when asked about my “home” my mind would see Grand Dell Drive opposed to West Tenny Ave) & so my home is still a “house” & things aren’t really decorated. However, my boyfriend has moved in with me (& my dog – it’s a cozy hot mess) & we are trying to make it ours. But that’s a whole other adventure!
Until then – I cannot wait for fall to hit my street!
