Well, it's official. I'm a homeowner! Just to make sure they couldn't take it back, I had all the locks changed. : ] This was one of the most exciting days of my life but one of the most intimidating. I was able to accomplish my dream of buying a home within my first 2 years back in Tampa. It will have been 2 years in May since I moved here, so I was a little bit ahead of schedule!
I didn't realize how much work this whole process is. And even now, the work is just beginning. But I have a home! A home of my very own, in my favorite city in the world (or at least of the ones I've been too). So, I wanted share my good news and excitment with you. Thank you to everyone who has given me advice, support, and prayers throughout this process. I'm glad it is over and I hope that those of you who are local will be able to come over soon (when I have furniture for you to sit on).
I've been getting lots of questions about my move date but sadly, I'm not sure what it is yet. I have to do a little bit of work before I can get moved in, so I'm working on getting that taken care of now. I hope to be moving in the next few weeks though.
Stay tuned, there will be updates and pictures to follow. But for now...here's a little preview.
The first item I contributed to the condo...a welcome mat. : ]
My favorite room in the house, at least so far. The kitchen. Now I just need to learn to cook!
