Tuesday's Tribute - My man

I'm going to be a total corn-ball this week (so get over it!) and do my Tuesday Tribute to my wonderful boyfriend Andrew.

By Friday, Andrew will have purchased his very first home. Its taken a long time for him to get to this point. He lived with roommates (engaged to be married) when I first met him. They weren't always the most considerate or the most fun, but he made it work while he had too. Some events occurred that caused him to move out and back home with his parents. That made things really difficult for us at first. Both of us living at home was not very easy. While all this was going on, he also started a new job and so did I. Stress loomed over our relationship for the first time and things got a little rocky. Over a course of events we broke up, and then started hanging out again (slowly) and got back together. This was from about late September till late November.

I want to say that I was worried things would not work out, and that is a true statement. I didn't know what was going to happen to us. We were just starting to plan on moving in together....now what was I going to do?!?! After we worked through our issues and things settled down we started looking at houses again, on my side of town (once we realized we could not afford to live on the North end of Columbus). After a good two months of searching we found the place we will soon call home. I am proud of Andrew for being such a wonderful and supportive boyfriend and for doing what he could to make our dream happen. He's been extremely frugal the last few months, putting his Volvo project and all other purchases on hold. We've spent many evenings walking the isles of Lowes and Home Depot in search of ideas and now its all going to pay off.

Here is a recent and cute photo of us together. Click the button below that if you would like to learn more about Tuesday's Tribute or participate!

That's a great tribute. You both sound like you've got what it takes to make it as a couple. I think everyone hits bumps in the road. It's all knowing how to navigate them.
