Our First Home

When we decided to invest in a home, we chose to buy a duplex so that we could live in one side and rent out the other.  This was an old home from the 40's divided in two and it has so much charm!  We chose to live in the top half of the duplex, and because it was our own little nest (as opposed to a rental), we took a shoe-string budget and remodeled a bit.  Though we were a bit cramped at times, I absolutely loved this apartment and it will always be special to me as our first home sweet home...

Parties, late nights with friends over chai, music, windows open in the fall, yummy-smelling candles, our little black kitty Otis, the gas wall heater, dark wood floors, and baking in the kitchen...ahhhh...good times!
