After years of dreaming and counting pennies, we've bought our very first house! It's a modest little row home in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Port Richmond and I can't wait to get to know our neighbors. It's our little fixer-upper with tons of original character and loads to check off the to-do list. I'm getting giddy all over again just typing this out!

I'm not the least bit afraid of the work that lays ahead and my new motto is

"Do a little everyday and we'll eventually get there." 

We're taking it slow, because we want everything to be done right. My evenings are spent watching Youtube videos on renovation projects and scouring Craigslist for deals. This Old House and I are becoming quick friends. It's a very exciting time in our lives and I want remember every second of it.
