Welcome to Love in the Time of Foreclosure

Hi! My name is Stephanie Walker and I began this blog in January of 2009 while my husband and I were fighting to keep our house out of foreclosure and our marriage above the madness.

We succeeded at both. Hooray!

Our house sold in a short sale on June 30, 2009 and our marriage is better than ever. In fact, we're expecting our first child in July!

Where do we live now? Rent-free in a 1910 farmhouse on a remote and beautiful little island in Washington State.

How the heck did that happen?! Well, our entire journey is here. The ups the downs and everything in between. I invite you to start from the beginning. The first post "Drowning in debt, Losing our house, Happier than ever" can be read here.

How we AVOIDED foreclosure

For a time, the blog was located over at ChicagoNow. And there are lots of posts over there. That's where I blogged about our bankruptcy as well as the first three months in the house on the island.

If you want to know about our life on the island, you'll want to visit my NEW blog Two Years on an Island. I hope you'll take a gander.

And by the way, I love hearing from readers! I began this blog hoping to connect with others going through the same thing. If that's you, I especially would love to hear from you.

Heard your lovely "Story" on Dick Gordon's NPR program. Congratulations on figuring out what is most important in life. It put perspective into my day. I too am trying to figure this all out and blogging about it. I plan to read more!
Again, congrats!

Me too! Heard it on NPR radio then forgot the web address. Thank God google knows you (2nd page for "foreclosure blog")!

Your marriage is a great inspiration for me as we (me and my wife) are also having some financial troubles. Thanks again.

Hi there. My family suffers from this foreclosure atrocity. We've been at this fight for over two years now. I just thought it relevant to mention a song on youtube about foreclosures and Bank of America. This guy says it as it is.
