Our 2 Year House-aversary!

(Thanks to the sudden insanity and temporary death of Blogger last week, this post mysteriously disappeared. So, I'm re-posting it today - just pretend that it's last Thursday when you read it, mkay? And I apologize if this is the second time you've read it!)

2 years ago today we were handed the keys to this old fossil, and not a day goes by that we regret our spontaneous and wild decision to buy a house and make it into a home.

2 years ago today we signed the documents that officially declared us homeowners to this ol' fossil.

2 years ago today we jumped in the car with our new home's keys and drove straight to our future home after the closing.

2 years ago today we walked through our future home, envisioning all the changes the house would go through as we changed along with it.

2 years ago today we daydreamed about the family we'd have in our new home, and all the precious memories we'd make.

2 years ago today we were so excited about our new home that we picked up a couple of burritos from Chipotle and raced back to our new house and ate our dinner on the floor in the living room.

2 years ago today we never, ever thought our ol' fossil of a house could ever look this. dang. good.

I'm excited to see what changes the next 2 years bring - to our family, and to our home.

Cheers for 2 years as homeowners!
