I am so excited for you. When Jeff proposed I started thinking about how we would start our lives together. We knew his lease was coming to an end. He asked if I wanted to move in together. The answer was obvious. I want to spend as much time together as possible. So yes I want to move in together!
We started casually looking on the MLS – just to get an idea of what was out there. We never thought we would find our dream home right away. But there you were. Newly redone. A totally blank slate. And it couldn’t hurt to just look… right?
Later that same night we were standing in our dream home. Not too big, but with space for an office. Two closets. One for me and one for Jeff. A guest bathroom, and lots of (marble) counter space. It was love at first sight. Later that week we were signing the paperwork. I am already envisioning all the firsts we will have here. And I’m excited.
Right now we are making memories shopping for the perfect furniture at bargain prices. We’ve spent a good deal of time at Home Goods and Ross. Plus a road trip to IKEA and scouring Amazon for good prime deals! And good old Target with my red card and the clearance section!
Dear townhouse, I can’t wait for all the memories we are going to make together in you. You are where we will make our first budget together. You are where we will make cookies, and burn popcorn. You are where we will plan our wedding, and celebrate our first year of marriage. You are going to see us through sickness and health. You are going to be here for us. I’m already so thankful for this opportunity. I can’t wait to see where life takes us, and I’m excited for our story together to start here.
