Eric and I closed on our first house together on March 31, 2011! We are absolutely in love with our new home. Although we cannot fill it full of furniture yet because it's almost 4,000 square feet and we only have enough furniture for a house about half that size, we are so excited about our future in this home.
We will experience a LOT of firsts in this home-- first time hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas for our families, first POOL (yes, we're going to get a pool!), first child (not any time soon... but it will eventually happen and we'll be living in this house), first time paying Home Owner's Association dues, first time having a media room for hosting game watching parties, ...etc.
I will say that closing on a house is a horribly painstaking process, but having a beautiful new home to call your own is totally worth it!
Here are some photos from the day that we closed on our house!
Thank you, Jesus, for continuing to bless us! God is SO good.
