The first year of marriage was spent in 2 different homes. When we first got married, we rented a townhouse in Modesto, 2 bedrooms & 2 baths. It was perfect but we decided we wanted to buy a home and that meant it was time to start house hunting. We began escrow for a home in Denair in November and decided to move in with Stephen's parents until that closed, so at least we can save a couple months rent :) Well, the house ended up not going through. We ended up putting in over 17 offers on homes and not getting ONE! I guess it wasn't God's plan for us to buy a home right now. In September 2009, we began renting a small, cozy little 2 bedroom & 1 bath home in the little town of Denair. We love it here! It's tiny but it's perfect!
