big news

 Last week, M and I closed on our house! We are officially homeowners! After signing our names on about 8000 legal documents, we were handed lots of keys.


 We went straight over to our new house to take some photos and change some locks.


 And ham it up for the camera a little bit ;)






It was built in 1890, and it's going to be a lot of work, but we are so excited!

  2. A great big congrats! Older houses are so much more charming than new ones. Even if it requires some work, you guys will transform it into something super special! And the best part...it's all yours!!! You can do what you like without having to answer to annoying greedy landlords. Yay!
