June 1st came and went and felt surprisingly normal. While for most it may have seemed like a random day to celebrate, for us it was definitely a significant event in our lives. We made our very first mortgage payment! The most important thing about June 1st, however, is that we survived without having to give up food, driving, going out, or shopping. And, when the mortgage bill arrived we learned that somehow when it was all calculated out, it was actually $22 dollars less than what we thought it was going to be.

So, while June 1st may have been a rather low-key day for you, for us it was the first day I actually kinda thought of myself as an adult. If ever you would have told me that I would celebrate being in the most debt imaginable, I certainly would have rolled my eyes and scoffed. And now, here we sit, in debt up to our eyeballs - feeling magically happy!!
