Starting Our Life Together

3 Years ago the Hubs and I got Three years ago, seems like just yesterday. Dave and I got married after dating for 5 years. We’ve known each other since we were in the 3rd grade. My family moved to St. Louis from Indiana right before I went into the 3rd grade. Our neighbors invited us to church and it was there that I met Dave, the rest is history.  After living in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 years we finally decided we needed to have something that was ours. We were quickly outgrowing our apartment and it was become clear very quickly that we needed more space. So we asked around and found the perfect Realtor. We then started on the horrible journey known as house hunting.

I had this fantastical idea in my head that we would like at a handful of houses and happen upon our dream home. It definitely did not work out that way. We looked at 25+ homes and I was left frustrated and drained. Most houses looked great online, but when we would go to walk through it looked like a house of horrors- roofs with holes, holes in walls, holes in floors (okay, there were a lot of holes), and so much other damage it made my head spin. A lot of houses had potential, but we definitely knew we didn’t want to get into full electrical rewiring or foundation work. So finally, after a few months of searching we found a house that needed a little bit of work, but wasn’t totally out of our skill set. But that is a story for next time…
