We are now officially houseowners!

Well, we've been homeowners for a while, since the condo we live in has been owned by my husband since 1993. But we've been relatively cramped as a married couple in the one-bedroom condo for more than 7 years, and have been wanting to expand. Unfortunately, after the market started skyrocketing after we got married, we had little chance of affording a single-family home. However, since we've both received promotions recently and the market has gone down, we thought we'd poke around the real estate a bit. We started looking around our neighborhood, but everything was more expensive, very small (i.e., same or less square footage than our condo), and usually quite old. So we expanded our search a little bit, to find a place that felt more in the country while still remaining in the city, and came upon the house that we just bought and closed on today. I think we got a good bang for our buck on this house. :) Now we'll have some room to breathe. Aahhhhhhh.
