As I’ve mentioned in a couple posts back, Tom and I are moving downstate, and that is next week! Oh my goodness! Before I was like, “Can we move now!?” And now that it’s in a couple of days, I’m a little panic-y because there’s still so much to pack. I still am not even done packing my office/closet, let alone the rest of the house, lol.
Procrastinator much!? YES!
This weekend though, we’re really gonna do some packing and hopefully have about 80% of it done. Any who, Tom was actually gone for a week for he went downstate to help work on our house. The house isn’t completely finished yet but it’s pretty darn close :) Here’s a before and after photo.
I still can not believe that Tom bought this house. I was honestly expecting just getting an apartment for our first year, but then we found this house and well… as much as I did want it, I didn’t want to get my hopes up on getting an actual house. Little did I know! I’m really thankful. Just thinking about it… really, it makes me cry.
To those who don’t know me personally, I grew up in the Philippines, in a really small house -a one bedroom house. When I was 9 years old, my parents took my sister, brother and I to the U.S. to have a better life. We lived in a two bedroom apartment at first and then after a year my parents got us a big house.
That was the first time I ever had my very own bedroom.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is, to have this be mine and Tom’s very first home together is just so mind boggling. I’m so thankful to have him in my life. Seriously, sometimes I feel like I don’t deserve him. He’s just so nice… the nicest guy I know and is always giving me the best of everything. Same goes for his dad, who’s always so helpful. I’m just really lucky… no, BLESSED (yup, that’s the correct word). Thank you god for blessing me with such amazing people in my life. I can’t wait to start the new chapter of my life with Tom in our dream home! I love him so much -seriously, he IS the perfect guy. What more could I ask for?
