Flash Back Friday

12 years ago this month, my family was temporarily homeless. Don't get me wrong, we were well-cared-for by friends in our community, but we were homeless. For nearly four months we lived off the kindness of strangers. We even went to Disney Land!!

I never thought, way back in April 1996, about the years to come. Never thought about college. Never thought about marriage. Never thought about Maddie. Never thought about buying my own home.

But this month, I've been graduated from college for 11 months. I've been married for one year, 10 months. Maddie has been my little black baby for 10 months. Kev and I close on our house in a matter of days.

It's been a good dozen years. Looking forward to a few more.


PS Check out my pink house one more time:

It needs some serious TLC.

  1. Your very own house! Ah, I am so jealous. Can't wait to see your garden! I'll just have to live through you.
