We Put a Dot on It!

We've been back in the mother land for almost a year and a half. Time seriously flies. We've spent time living with family, in team housing and then when Steve retired, back to living with family. While living with family is great on the budget, it isn't always ideal for your relationship. With our plans to keep Toronto as our long term home base, we knew we needed to start looking for a place to call our own. And not just in a September to May, hockey season kind of way.

When thinking about buying our first home, I have a long list of musts...

Must have a garage.

Must have 2+ bedrooms and bathrooms.

Must have a large backyard.

Must have an amazing kitchen.

Must be open-concept.

And absolutely MUST be close to the water.

But then, I am brought back to reality. Who am I kidding, I live in Toronto, and unless by some miracle we win the lottery, that list of musts ain't happening.

And so, I reevaluate...

Must be within our price range.

[And must have 2+ bedrooms and an amazing kitchen.]

Turns out, when I come back down to reality, shit gets done because I can now officially announce...  we put a dot on it!!

We're homeowners! 

And bonus, it's a 10 minute walk to the water.

More to come in the following months...
