Reviving an old tradition… we’re truly fortunate and it’s always a good idea to give thanks. Even if you don’t know to whom you’re giving thanks. Lots of superlatives are coming, but that’s just because I’m an opinionated jerk sometimes. 🙂 I’ve got the best life partner in the world. Who just brought me a… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving
I love our neighborhood. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I appreciate the goodies of our home. We’ve got plenty of space, more bathrooms than we could possibly use, and tons of “extras” that we’d never want to live without: plenty of outdoor spaces, brick walls, exposed beams, hardwood floors, two-floor living, in-unit washer… Continue reading Anyone want to swap houses?
