NaBloWriMo - Monday Memories 4 – Buying a House




Ten years ago this month I met and fell in love with my amazing hubby; we started on what we called our five year plan.  Our plan was that we would own our own home within that time frame.  By year two we were both unemployed due to layoffs in our industry and we were just trying to make ends meet.

We had a kid to get out of high school and get into college as well as a budding boxer business to get off the ground.  With each door that closes another opens, and we ended up in a position that would allow us to continue to assist with the kid’s education but also allow us to move to the east coast.

November 2005 we drove to the Cliffs of the Neuse State Park and saw this view:

By the end of the year we were all moved in.  I did several turn and burn plane rides to bring Sheba, Duchess and the kid to NC. We had seasons!

Here we are now, 2012 with a budding business and our relationship still going strong.  

I've discovered a passion for Sculpting!
