Another Life Chapter- We are now homeowners…

Even though I am not one for numbers, significant ones stick out for me. I remember birthdays of those close to me, my first date with my husband which subsequently led to the date we got married. I am pleased to announce that today- Monday, December 17, 2012 will be added to this list. We are official homeowners. (Well, technically the bank bought the house, but we will be paying them back for the next 30 years.)

It took us a long time to get to where we are- two cross-country moves, world travels, a moving accident, career changes, and a whole slew of other stuff- but getting the keys made the process all worthwhile. I wait in joyful anticipation knowing that after some sweat equity, this place will house many new memories for us. As we raise our glasses today, I can hear my Dad saying “Salute a cent’anno.” (An Italian blessing which toasts to 100 years of health and happiness!)

However, I do know that without the help of others, we would never be where we are. I especially want to thank my in-laws (Tom and Alice) for graciously making your house our house for the last two years. You both deserve purple hearts for putting up with us while we were putting the puzzle pieces together. We definitely couldn’t have done this without you! Thank you doesn’t begin to say how much we are appreciative.

I can’t wait to start this new chapter. More to come…
