Joy and I purchased our first home!
Apparently I'm not one for writing in chronological order, as I've already written two articles about the move (here and here), but thought that it needed an official announcement on here. We purchase our first home at the beginning of August, and as of yesterday, are fully moved in (whereby "moved in", I mean all of our stuff is here, not necessarily put in place).
I'm sure I'll be writing more about the new world of homeownership, so stay tuned!
P.S. Yes, this had something to do with us pursuing owning our own home.
