Our Own Home

March 5, 2010

The journaling reads:
Jake and I have been together for sixteen years but we’ve never owned a home before 2009. We’ve always had the misfortune of living in cities where the housing prices are exorbitant.

In New York, we almost bought a two-bedroom condo but at the last minute we decided to move away from the city instead. In San Diego, we never even considered buying. (I’m thankful for that because those same houses are now selling for half the price.) It didn’t bother me that we didn’t own a house.

But a piece of me always wished that we would someday get to have one. And last year, my dream finally came true. Our house isn’t as big as it could be but it’s really perfect for our little family. It’s in a nice neighborhood with good schools. It’s new and clean and all the rooms are spacious. There is a lot of light in every single room. And, most significantly, it’s ours. I am very grateful.
