Our First Home

This past December we bought a home...and I have to admit that it is the first home we've owned. Here we are a retired couple and we bought our first home! The circumstances around needing to move from a home we rented for over 15 years were a bit sad, but as so many have said we never what will happen when one door closes. I have to say that I absolutely LOVE our new home. It isn't huge or anything like that, but it is ours, it is clean and suits us perfectly. I have a gorgeous kitchen and an upstairs where I ride my recumbent bike and can do my crafting too. My hubby has huge shed that has electricity and even has a cable line to it should he ever want to set up a television out there. Our move was just across the street from where we were living and the snow held off until we had most everything moved over. We made a lot of trips back and forth using carts and finally on the day of the big move we had lots of help from our son, son-in-law and a friend from church. This was one of the easiest moves I've ever had and I am so grateful for all that gave us help. We were all moved in and mostly settled by Christmas day and I loved having our family over to celebrate not only the birth of our Lord, but our new cute little home too. The picture is from late summer and the picture that was used to advertise this cute little home. Our cute little home! Did I mention that I love it?

Your house looks great. Buying a home is a very special experience and I'm glad you had a chance to experience it. Have a blast decorating it. May you have many happy memories there.

How do you manage to get home loan? Or do you pay for it in cash? I cannot imagine why you wait so long to get your own house.

Thankfully our state has a great program for first time home buyers. We thought we would need much more money to get into a home of our own. If we would have known how little our down would actually be we would have done it years ago.

I don't think it is ever too late and I hope to own a house one day. For me it is to have a place for my disabled daughter to feel safe and comfortable but if I am blessed to live in the house I will be grateful. Lovely little house you bought.

Thank you. I love it. I joke with my adult kids that I have to live to 96 years old to pay it off now! LOL

One of our newest new neighbors bought their first house and they are in their 60's also. They are a joy to have around when we aren't distracting the heck out of each other. it's nice to have something that is yours. I love the fact you literally moved across the street... such an easy move indeed! I hope you have gotten situated nicely into your new home by now.

Sometimes those 'short' moves are more work than long distance moves. Congrats on your new home

It is too cute not to be loved. :) I am glad you are having everything you love in it...large homes do not necessarily have everything in them. :) There is always something missing in every home. :)
