Achieving Adulthood

We did it -- closed on our first house yesterday. The amount of space we have is mind boggling. We'll never be able to go back to our NYC ways of living together in less than 400 square feet of space!

Today Shawn and his amazing helpers got most of our stuff moved over (I'm writing this from the apartment and we'll take a load of foodstuffs and clothes to the house in a bit ... Internet not turned on at the house yet).

Shawn and the new fridge: Thanks Dale and Steve!

Mari and the new washer/dryer
Realizing I don't have a good picture of the front of the house. I could steal one from the real estate listing, but those were taken when the trees were bare. The trees are not bare now -- there's even one that flowers purple!

Best shot i've got for now.
We have a lot of work to do. I'm quite tired and ready to make the bed and fall asleep. More updates as we go from turning this house into our home.

Edit: Updated to thank Steve ... also, this was my 1000th post.

Yay!!! I'm so excited for you (and a little jealous of your shiny new appliances)! When can I come over to help unpack?

So does this mean you are planted and committed firmly to that locale???

Geez, it might get all the way up to SIXTY-FIVE here tomorrow ("they say...").

Hope you can continue to stand the weather down there.

Can't wait to see more pictures of you (sure you are even more radiant than ever!) and the house!
