When Mr. O and I opened up a joint bank account, I felt like an adult. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve acted like an adult for a long time. There are many adult-ish things I have done… but I’ve always been lacking in regards to relationships. I’ve never been in a real grown up relationship. And then I started getting bank statements with both of our names mailed to my house! It was (and still is every month) exciting.
But now, now I think I really am all grown up. Mr. O and I went to get pre approved for a mortgage tonight at our bank. The process wasn’t nearly as painful as I thought it would be. I know nothing is different, because we’ve been looking for houses for quite sometime, but I guess the formality of the mortgage makes me feel like special.
But none of that matters. I just want to make a home a home with the man I love.
