The idea of home ownership always seemed like a huge hassle to me and something I just couldn’t be bothered to think about. I was perfectly happy renting and having the opportunity to change my address every year (or 6 months) if I liked. As of March 5, I will have lived in Pella for 4 years. In those 4 years, I have moved 5 times. It’s surprising even to me, but I would like to announce that I will be moving my 6th and final time in April! Within a week of learning I was pregnant I knew this lifestyle needed to change. I thought of my own childhood and the wonderful memories I have growing up and decided my daughter would have nothing less. So, for the past year I have scoured this town and surrounding areas for the right house to begin our family in. The perfect place fell into my lap 2 weeks ago and now I can proudly say that it’s all mine! It’s a charming home built in 1910 that has been fully remodeled while retaining a lot of character. It will give us room to grow and I am so looking forward to giving it my own personal touch! I can’t wait to share pictures – you better believe I’ll be in the front yard with my camera the next time the sun decides to shine!
