We did it! We bought our first house! Trevor and I have been talking about buying a home together since our second anniversary. We’ve had various obstacles in our way (or, maybe we have allowed them to get in our way) of us buying a home together. It’s been a few years of delays, but we finally did it.

The same can be said of other...
