As tired and cliché as it sounds, time really does fly. This will be the last edition of this series and I can hardly believe it. It seemed like yesterday I was browsing realtor.com daily, anxiously rummaging around for my first house and next home… and now I’m wrapping this whole thing up. My wife and I are completely settled in, completely comfortable, and completely happy with our decision. The memories of our condo are slowly being replaced by memories created in our new house. We can’t wait to see how the neighborhood handles Halloween and we’re very eager to host our annual New Year’s Eve party. The routine that has been established is calming. I now know exactly where the pots and pans go, where to find the aspirin, and what day the trash is collected. No more clutter and chaos. Now that this chapter of buying my first house is coming to an end, I very much welcome the next chapter… living in my first house.
