Mi casa, su casa

img557Surprise! It’s official. After nearly 5 months of waiting, today I finally closed on my dream house. I am taking the day off to just sit inside my new home and enjoy it. As my boss said, “sick days should also be used for wellness days.” It’s a beautiful perspective that people should practice more often.

I’m still in disbelief. While I have refrained from posting very much about my homebuying process on my blog, things have been crazy and frantic in the background to make a smooth transition to closing. Even getting to the closing was arduous, and tested a lot of patience. But I’m glad I waited this long for this home, it’s perfect, and it’s all mine.

So tonight, I celebrate in my empty home. There will be much to do starting tomorrow – the house has been vacant for 6-7 months, so you can imagine the amount of yardwork I have to do. But gosh, I am so lucky that the interior is pristine and perfect. I can’t wait to start flooding my blog with fun projects, documenting the making of a house into my home.

Check out my home story to learn more about why it’s so important to me. I know that home is important to nearly everyone, but it holds a different meaning for each person. So here’s what it means to me.
