Two year ago, on this very day, we celebrated the sweetest Valentine’s Day by writing a huge love note to the firehouse. We closed our loan, launched this blog and said “Firehouse – We looooove you!”
I can’t believe that two years have already passed. And, honestly, we had a hard week. We’re refinancing and the appraisal didn’t come in as high as we believe it should have. (That’s really all I can say about it without this turning into a crazy rant.) For a moment, just a tiny, fleeting moment I thought “Why can’t we do anything “normal” and live in a normal house?”
But, we don’t and outside of that emotionally charged reaction I can’t even see us in anything else. I don’t know where we would be if we hadn’t found this place, just like I don’t know where or who I would be if Aaron hadn’t crossed my path. Both are such pivotal, life-shaping events.
Come what may, I wouldn’t change a thing. This place is absolutely amazing. I just see it… in the spaces we’ve touched… When I look past the clutter and craziness in the spaces we’re getting to. I see it. I see our dream house.
I love you, firehouse. Thanks for always being our Valentine, and happy anniversary. You look better every year.
