We bought our house from the original owners about 10 years ago. I couldn’t have been happier or more excited on that beautiful spring day in April. To own our first home in a neighborhood I had only fantasized living in was truly a dream come true. You see, I grew up in a two bedroom apartment and shared a bedroom with my sister. To now own a house felt like I had won the lottery so needless to say, I cried tears of joy at the settlement table the day we closed on the house. I felt very grateful.
