One year ago today…

One year ago today, we closed on our house

It’s crazy to think that a year ago we were still living in our tiny apartment downtown…

Buying our house in Northside was the best decisions we’ve ever made. And it’s been one of the best years of my life. 😀🔑🏡🌈❤️

Darn right, more power.

We had a contractor come out this morning to replace our garage disposal. Just look at this beast of a new disposal…

The InSinkErator PRO 750 Evolution 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Food Waste Disposal. (Insert Tim Allen grunts). Kitchen wood chipper. The disposal was also causing our dishwasher not to drain properly. So we couldn’t really use our fancy super nice dishwasher. And now that our disposal works, our dishwasher works great again too!

You don’t know how much you take a dishwasher for granted until it isn’t working. And it was all extremely affordable thanks to our homeowner’s warranty! 😀

The bouquet of daisies I got for Genifer all the way back on May 24th is still looking as fresh as the day they arrived…

We didn’t do anything after our big fun day yesterday except lay around today. 😀🌼

Good morning.

The sun was actually out this morning! And it was illuminating our bedroom window…

Outside, the sun rising above the houses across the street was really pretty…

And the morning light was making our living glow as well…

🙂

O Christmas tree.

We went and picked out our first full-sized Christmas tree this afternoon…

We managed to slide our tree in the trunk of our car instead of tying it to the roof. That was a pretty dumb idea because now there’s a bunch of pine needles in our trunk…

Our tree looked a lot bigger at the store…

It looked like Chrismas exploded on our dining room table…

Once it was all decorated, it was a very pretty little tree…

Next year, we’re going to get a bigger tree. And try to find someone that delivers. 🙂

Looks like we’re going to have to rake some leaves sometime soon…

I think Oscar can’t wait until all the leaves are raked into a big pile so he can jump in and roll around. 🙂

Seen and noted.

Oscar spotted a possum sitting atop the fence in our backyard tonight…

We’ve also seen squirrels and raccoons so far in our backyard. Taken with Instagram. 🙂

Our two benches for our table and the matching sideboard that completes our new dining room set were delivered this evening…

Pause for paws.

Oscar was just hanging out on our back patio while we were grilling again tonight…

🙂

Goodbye 2B.

We stopped by to grab a our last few remaining odds and end, and said goodbye to our little apartment this evening…

Thanks for the seven year full of wonderful memories, apartment 2B. We’ll always cherish our time with you. 😊

Moving day!

Our movers came this morning to pack up all our stuff. We used Two Men and a Truck. It was pretty crazy just how fast the loaded up all of our stuff…

It looked like so much stuff when it was all in our apartment…

Home sweet home. 🙂 Now the unpacking begins. :/

Our last night downtown.

We stayed up late into the night packing before our movers arrived in the morning…

And we finally got to lay down one last time…

🙂

#TBT Pause for paws.

As we get ready to leave our little apartment on Sycamore Street after seven years, here are some photos I took after Milan and I had just moved in way back in June of 2009…

What strikes me about looking at these photos is just how empty the apartment looked. And how when I’m in our new house, it looks the same to me. Like a blank canvas just waiting to be filled. We had a lot of adventures in that little apartment. We take with us a lot of great memories of our time here. And we look forward to the new adventures and new memories that await us in our new home.

🙂

On the eve of Christmas Eve.

We were getting the distinct feeling that Oscar was starting to get pretty excited for Christmas because he kept sitting by all the presents surrounding our little tree…

Later, he continued his festive mood by wearing my scarf for a while…

Happy eve of Merry Christmas Eve! 🙂

Corners of our home.

Genifer started decorating our home for the holidays. Here’s our little tree…

Our little fake tree…

Our Charlie Brown Christmas tree…

And the wreath on the backside of our front door…

Even Oscar was getting into the holiday spirit…

He wasn’t happy about it but still, he was pretty pretty dang cute…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 🙂
