You may recall last week that I spoke about the Fiesta Movement. Each month agents make videos surrounding a theme. I enjoyed this Fiesta agents video because, much like our adventure, it’s all about family.
Bloggers get to share their experiences in the movement with a post on the theme. This month it’s adventure, and today I reveal the adventure I went on – the biggest adventure of my life. But before I reveal what it is, let’s discuss what constitutes an adventure shall we?
- Something you’ve never done before
- Totally worth it
Check, check, check, check and check.
I’ve never felt each of these things as much as when I went on this adventure. Every time I signed a paper or initialled on a line, the fear and exhilaration grew as I became more aware of the risk we were taking. But through all that fear, we know this first time venture will be completely worth it and an amazing experience. You guys….…we bought a house!
Buying a house for the first time is downright terrifying, but at some point you have to just jump in and trust it will be all right. Just like in any adventure, we thought about it, made the decision, held our breath and jumped into the sea of bureaucratic paperwork.
And while I’m still terrified we’ll be house poor for the unforeseeable future, or that some nasty problem the home inspection missed will rear its ugly head, I am overall ecstatic. As of this coming Saturday we will have the key to our very first house!This house is our Everest. We’ve made it to base camp, but we have a long ways to go as we climb through mini renovations and cosmetic upgrades, no doubt slipping along the way as problems arise. But at the end of the day, we’ll be able to fly up to the top with the satisfying feeling that this house is our own, and it’s our home.
I’m declaring this week House Week, so stay tuned all week for a tour of the home we’re leaving, the home we bought, and house inspiration.
