We have been in our house in New Jersey for one year. Well, one year on October 18. But life has been busy, y’all. In the past year, we have accomplished quite a bit. I still get overwhelmed and have to remind myself of that and rest easy that we are doing as much as we can. And what we can do is enough. Here are some of the highlights.
We ripped up our front yard and planted sod.
We basically gave our house a major botox-injection-facelift.
I found our house on Google Maps street view. it’s the best picture of the front of the house with a straight on view…of the craziest tree ever.
Now we have some serious landscaping to do next spring, but we still consider this one of our biggest accomplishments.
We ripped out plaster and put up drywall.
I promise we have walls now. Just gotta get you some pictures!
We bought a Jeep.
We hosted at least six major holidays/get-togethers.
And that doesn’t include little visits here and there.
Thanksgiving (six weeks after the move). I’m so proud of that, I feel like I should include it on my resume.
We traveled far and wide.
Cape May, NJ
Amish Country, PA
And that doesn’t include work travel! I went to Anaheim, Las Vegas, Florida, Pittsburgh, and Chicago (and probably more that I’m blocking out). Frankly, we are both a little exhausted. But its fun to look back at what we have accomplished. And our house has been the site of so many good memories for us and our friends and family already and I have a feeling that will continue for a good, long time.
