Two years ago today marks the first day we walked through the door of our little Dutch Colonial as home owners. I wrote a post about the experience when I started the blog (it was kind of a weird day).
Although our home just turned 87 years old, I still think our 2 years here have been very special! I am very proud of the updates we have made on our house and how 'homey' it now feels.
But more importantly, I am realizing how special and significant this home is in our lives. Before living here, I had lived in 10 places in a span of about 6 years. When I left the 'nest' and went off to college I moved around quite a bit, dorms and apartment leases. Then Alex and I moved to Minneapolis and lived in an apartment then the fancy condo. So, it is finally nice to have a place to feel settled in, a REAL home.
I'm pretty sure Alex, Rocco, Sadie and I won't be here forever. But it is nice to know we finally have a place in the world with that is truly special to us. Anyway, I guess it is a fun little anniversary to remember each year. Does anyone else out there remember/ recognize their 'home' anniversary?
