Life is pretty darn good over here and I honestly have nothing at all to complain about, but I have found myself coming down with a serious case of house envy. You see, most of our high school friends are homeowners already thanks to the awesome Texas real estate prices. Most of our new friends here in Seattle also have an abode to call their own because they're a few years older than us and are therefore passed the saving up period we're in now.
Housing prices here are crazy, so we'll be in that savings period for quite a while, although hopefully we can rent a home in the next couple years. Focusing on the blessings of not having a mortgage sounds like a better plan than just pouting about it, right? There are plenty of things I love about our 800 square feet, but today I'm feeling lots of gratitude for the fact that I can vacuum the entire place without moving the plug.
Oh, strategically-placed outlet in the hallway, I will miss you dearly one day.
