As we start our search for a new house, all of the emotions from the first search keep welling up inside me. I don't think the process will be nearly as arduous, because we know the areas that we are willing to live and we aren't looking outside of those (although we have strayed a time or two). Things with the banks are much easier now because we have both been working for several years so I'm assuming we are "safe bets". Still though, I know that the possibility of heart break is out there and I fear it the most. I know that is silly, especially since I'm steeling my heart just in case, but I can't help but see a house I love and start planning. I've mentally filled closets, placed the Christmas tree, hung our future children's stockings. I have to be able to think ahead when we see these houses because we are planning on a life that we do not have yet, but I'm trying to keep my planning and dreaming in check. I know everything will work out and as my friend Deborah said, whatever happens happens, and I know to expect bumps and set backs along the way. I'm really just anxious to have the process over with so we can get this next aspect of our lives underway! Wish me luck!
