I know it doesnt belong in this forum, but in many instances it does!!! I hope that I've been missed for the last month or so. Those who have been with me, on here, the whole time (even back before this forum), know that there was always one thing missing..our own home. Well, I a pleased to announce that WE ARE FINALLY HOMEOWNERS as of yesterday!!! It's been a long month and I have a nice wrought iron fence space for gardening...not to mention a screened in pool area (for tropicals around the pool)!! Its been years dreaming about a home with my name on it...SO HAPPY!!! Thank all of you for traveling the apartment journey with me because I learned so much from you all during that time and even more about myself and this absolute passion that I have for growing!!! Have already started my changes for hummer and butterflies and was approved. Even though its in a HOA (homeownwers assoc for Sjoerd) community and you have to get permission to do certain things...i am really ok with that!! Stay tuned for pics!!
