a big first

today we are moving into our first "home"
yes...we have lived in an apartment and a house before...
but this one is all ours.
our first as homeowners.
and i couldn't be more excited....
hence the no sleep i've been getting!!!

this is a huge deal for us for two reasons:
1)its our first "big kid pants" purchase
2)i thought this wouldn't happen for 12 more years...

being "married to the military" usually doesn't allow for buying a home and we always said we would wait until we were out.
well, with residency looming ahead and knowing san antonio is home for 5 more years...we decided to take the plunge!!
makes it easier that we live in the same location as my inlaws who happen to have experience as landlords in case we need to rent in 5 years.

buying a house is a scary and exciting thing...right?
many a night stressed or worried or excited!!!

but it's here and i couldn't be happier!

i had to share this with yall today...
thanks for letting me get all excited and sentimental!!!

happy wednesday!
