Our House Tour – Our First House

house tour our first house

We lived in this house from 2004-2005.

Dean and I have been married for over 20 years and we’ve lived in 11 homes in that time – most of which were apartments.

Our son and our first daughter were born when we lived in the lower level of a house – which suited us just fine. But when we were expecting daughter number two (kiddo number three) we figured it was high time we get a house of our own.

We ended up buying a little townhouse/rowhouse near Dean’s parents about an hour from the city. Cue the commute for Dean. And three vehicles in five years.

But we loved our first house while we lived there.


Are you ready?

this is like sharing middle school photos

Don’t laugh, we had very definite – COUNTRY – tastes back then!
