We sold our first home together last November — prior to our move to Seattle. Since then, we haven’t quite felt settled. We didn’t feel rooted in our Seattle apartment (because of the apartment itself, not the city), and we’ve been living with my mom since our return to Orlando in June.
It looks like this is about to change. We put an offer in on a house close to downtown earlier last month, and it was accepted. The loan application was processed this past week, and everything is set for us to close on Halloween.
I hope that signing the paperwork on this house will be the last hurdle to putting our feet back on the ground after what’s been a tumultuous year. To me, it feels like we are at long last finding a home after a year of living without one.
