It’s closing day!

2014-10-11 18.10.19-1

Ahhhhhh!!!!! It’s closing day!

Midday today, we officially become homeowners. I’m excited. I’m terrified. I’m stressed out. I’m freaked out. I’m… so very ready.

It’s been a very long and trying process. It’s tested our patience at times. It’s tested our ability to juggle logistics. It’s STILL forcing us to juggle logistics.

Our closing was supposed to be October 2nd, but it got delayed in the paper processing stage. It happens, and I was pretty much expecting it. But at the same time, this really put us in a bind scheduling wise for moving and my husband’s tour schedule. We’ll make it work, especially with the help of friends and family.

Our new mantra is, “This is the FUN part!”

That it is… that it absolutely is…

One month from today

In a month, my husband and I are making a huge step in life.

We close on a new house. Our first house. We are first-time home buyers. It’s exhilarating. It’s exciting. It’s terrifying.

But I’m so in love with my new house.


This has been, without a doubt, one of the most stressful things I’ve ever done. And am still doing! Between financial side of things and logistical, I’m pretty much exhausted 24/7. But I am learning SO MUCH. We went into this literally knowing nothing about the home buying process. But we have surrounded ourselves with kind, patient and understanding people from day one. So far, the process has been smooth and I feel wiser (and older!) from it.

This month is going to fly by… But it’s also going to drag. I want to be in the new place NOW even as I’m going, “I don’t have enough time to get it all done!”

But it will get done. And it will be amazing.
