One Year Ago

We closed on our first house. I will never forget the amazing feeling we had as we walked out of the realtors office, knowing we were going to our first home. Chris and I were on cloud nine. Then we walked into the house and the chest pains began.  We remembered that we bought a work in progress. 

Here are some pictures of the house, the day we took ownership of it:

The Dining Room














Click on the links and you'll see the current state of each room. It's amazing how far we've come in a year. We love living in our house and have already created such wonderful memories.

Do you remember how you felt when you bought your first home?

Congratulations on your anniversary. I absolutely love what you've done to the house. You have amazing taste and I love that you are a bargain shopper. I am, too! :)

We just bought our first house (a foreclosure) and I think I'll do a before and after post when it's all done.

You've done a great job with the house! I remember how exciting it was when we closed on our condo. It's still fun thinking back to that day.
