So what have I been up to in the last couple of months? I could talk about it for probably an hour and still forget some of the stuff that has been happening in my life!!
Let’s start with the biggest items….
- Henry and I bought our very own house (!!!!)
- I GRADUATED COLLEGE!!!
I can’t even believe how crazy 2017 has been for us. We never expected to be buying a house of our own this soon. It was definitely in our 5-year plan, but not our 1-year plan!!
Truth is…rent is expensive!! We really wanted to move out of our one bedroom apartment and get a little more space. We looked at a lot of different apartment complexes and houses for rent around the city and finally decided to look into buying a house instead. Low and behold…we were in great shape to become homeowners!
At the beginning of our home-buying journey, our lender said to us that buying a home is like flying in a plane. You either have a great flight and it is smooth sailing, or it’s a bit harder and you hit some turbulence along the way.
We got the turbulence. It has been great.
Buying a home has been one of the most exciting and stressful things Henry and I have ever done in our lives. When we found the house we wanted to buy, we couldn’t sleep for about 3 days due to the adrenaline that was in our systems. We have experienced every single emotion known to man in regards to our house: happiness, excitement, confusion, anger, and everything in between.. But now that we are moved in and starting to get settled….it has all been worth it.
If you’d like to hear more detail about anything regarding our home-buying experience, please leave a comment and let me know what you’d like me to write about!
Oh…did I mention I also graduated college last weekend??
Well…I GRADUATED COLLEGE LAST WEEKEND!!
I can’t even believe that after being in school for my entire life I am finally done! I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. I would have never been able to do it without the full support of my Husband the last couple years, as well as all of our parents.
I have met so many friends along the way, some that have come and go, and some that will hopefully be friends with me for the rest of my life. I have spent countless nights staying up late to finish projects or write papers. I’ve had way too much coffee and eaten pretty unhealthy when I was in a rush, and most of all…I have created memories that will last me forever.
The last few years I have seen myself grow as a person and a professional. I look back at myself before I started college and remember thinking I had life figured out. But now I know I will never have life figured out. All I can do is continue to educate myself, try to stay humble, and remember that nothing can last forever.
Now that I have more time, I do hope to write more often. Life has been non-stop crazy for me lately, but hopefully with school finishing up I will be able to keep up with my blog better.
I am so excited to see what life has in store for me next. Here’s to a new adventure!
