finding your passion project

I recently bought my first house and have been experiencing the typical growing pains of a firsttime homeowner. I’ve filled out reams of paperwork, ripped up carpet, painted rooms, hung pictures on the walls, draped curtains over the windows, and even tried (and failed) to grow a garden. With all those hours of planning and labor under my belt, I now feel a much more personal connection to the place I live in and a sense of gratification knowing I was capable enough to tackle the challenges inherent in home buying.

Sarah, Web Editor: My iPhone’s camera saved me from a life of crime!
