Sometimes it seems like Mandy and I are always up to a new thing. Just a few months after moving to a new state, beginning a new job, and embarking on a new life, we are now in the process of buying our first home. And like most of our new adventures, this one is both exciting and terrifying.
Buying a home is such a huge decision...especially when you have no idea what you are doing. There have been a few times in the last 9 years that we have pondered a purchase of this magnitude, but we have never truly been serious about it like we are now. This is happening folks! Over the past 36 hours we have decided on both our lender and our realtor, and now are at the stage where we can go find a home, make an offer, and become first-time home owners. So sweet!
I have been talking for years about the importance of place, neighborhoods, and long-term community, but have never actually matched my words with action. In our 9 years of marriage, Mandy and I have now lived in 9 different places. That's crazy. I'd say it's time to put down some roots and stay somewhere for a while...a long while. It sure feels like Bozeman is the place where we would like to raise our family, so here we are on the precipice of this massive financial and familial decision. And we couldn't be more excited!
