Keep Those Fingers Crossed

When Mike and I first met, obviously we had separate homes. He owned his and I rented mine. Each of us living independently and staying at each others place worked for a while, well until about mid 2009. I broke my lease and moved out of my beloved apartment, my first one out of college on my own to be exact, and began to co-habitate (as my mom calls it). We were engaged a few months after I moved in and (now) married a year after our engagement.

There are many things I love about where we live now. The ability to walk to a good amount of restaurants, bars, shops and grocery stores is awesome. The area is safe and in town. We have a 24hr concierge and all the amenities you could ask for in a condo. There’s only one problem … it’s too small. We have a one bedroom, one bathroom condo for both of us and Miss Kona. We have no room to grow, no place to store any of our gorgeous wedding gifts, nowhere to put anything to be quite honest. I’ve actually become pretty good at hiding things and “organizing” things to make it seem less cluttered. We’ve discussed what to do in this hard economic time (as it pertains to selling homes … not buying) and have decided to start a search for tenants for our place and a new, bigger home for us.

We’ve found some tenants that we think would be a good fit. Still working out the kinks and making sure this is the right plan for Mike and I, but I think it’s going to work in the long run. At least I think there will be a mutually beneficial happiness for both the tenants and us. Also on the upside, Mike and I have been scouring homes to rent/buy/move/get us into a bigger home. Lucky us, we’ve found one we really like. So that brings us back to the title of my blog today. Fingers Crossed. We’re going to check this home out tonight. I’m UBER excited but also know that it could most definitely not work out for us so trying to not keep my hopes up too much. However, if it did, we’d be ecstatic! I’ll be sure to bring you all along with us on the journey as we potentially move from condo owners to new homeowner/renters.

Fingers crossed! Everything will work out how it should and if it doesn't you can always vent to me about it:)

Good luck! I definitely feel your growing pains too! We live in an 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment and I am SOOOOO ready to move into a big place with a garage and a yard and all the loves of owning a home! We will be waiting till after the wedding to move so we have to stick it out for another 8 months or so. Goodluck, hope it all works out for you!
