Buying my first home: Guilt, frustration, acceptance, and flamingos

At the age of 30, I purchased my first home. Purchased, as in wrote out possibly the biggest check of my life and took full and complete ownership of an entire, full, big, warts and all, 100 year old house. The last three years have been an intense love/hate relationship with the house. But once I shed the guilt from how I was able to purchase the house, and came to terms with settling in one place for more than a few years, it’s been an amazing experience making the house MINE.
