- Wedding: September 2018 - Orchard
So my Fiance and I have lived together since last August and got engaged in February. We live in my childhood home, which was given to my brother and I when my mom paid it off, when I turned 19. She and her boyfriend (my “stepdad”) were gone for 2 years before they moved back last July to help with renovations and changes that were needed for the house to be more functional. (Built in 1890’s and no remodels since I was very little) my parents have been trying to find a rent to own property of their own ever since, because everyone (me, Fiance, mom, stepdad and my brother) under one roof is hard. So we’ve started making a plan that my parents and brother will be moving out or already out by a few months after our wedding. Long story short things have been an emotional and financial Rollercoaster the last few months but the best thing happened this morning. My grandmother passed away the day after my Fiance proposed and ever since my mom has been redoing her kitchen table for me and my Fiance to start toward our renovation and revamping of the house. She brought it home this morning and I’ve been emotional ever since. It finally feels like we’re moving in to the “grown up/our home” phase of things.
