Well, we did it! I said that this year would be our year from the very beginning. I noted down my goals, my hopes and my dreams in January but there was one thing that I told myself we would do, no matter how hard it would be or what it would take.. but we did it and we bought our first home together! I still genuinely can't believe that I'm even writing these words because when we first viewed this house back in February, I never imagined it would be ours, even though we both wanted it so much and we knew it would be the perfect first home.
There's a hell of a lot of work to be done and we are on a very tight budget, so we will just have to see how it goes and do work as and when we can afford it. From here starts the hard work, the ups and the downs, the tears and the smiles, both our wages just thrown at our first home but I know it will all be worth it when we have our own space to breathe, relax, host parties, stay up late, walk around with nothing on.. all the things I've dreamed of for so long.
Anyway, I'm so excited to bring you on this journey with me and I'm just so happy we finally managed to do it all by ourselves. I have a short vlog I filmed all from the very beginning which I will pop a link to when I get around to uploading it, so you can see all the ups and downs that we encountered along the way. If you have any tips on renovating or any books or podcasts I can listen to to help inspire me please do comment below or send me a message on Instagram! I always love to hear what worked for you or what didn't! The buying process and a little first look at the house will be coming very soon and I'm so excited I just can't stop smiling! Lots of love, L.
