This is our first house; hubby and I bought it six months after we got married. We were paying too much for our apartment rent and if we add two hundred bucks, then we can pay for a house payment. So, we took the first step and bought this house we so loved and adored. Sold it when we moved to VA due to hubby's job. I still miss this house though because of the memories we shared there....aside from the amount of time, money and efforts we put into it.
