Europe Trip 2012

Here is a link to a photobook James made me for my birthday. I thought it was a great way for us to share our experiences with everyone.

Home Sweet Home

Yes! We did it. We moved this summer and we are all healthy and well! No more allergies to the house and after some blood, sweat, and tears (literally) it is shaping up to be pretty nice inside and out. What we love the most is having a yard & grass! Definitely a step up from our apt above the dry cleaners. Now time for some before & after shots.
(no fence...other than that little wooden panel on the left... wind blew it all down)
 (Yes.. James is my hero! He put up that vinyl fence all by himself, with a little help from Ryan on the posts)
So now the girls can do a whole lot of this:
 Playing in the backyard is AMAZING! Especially since I am able to look out the kitchen window and watch them while I cook. Love that. 
Amy & I saw this house on one of our morning runs. We looked inside & saw piles of trash, dust & ripped up flooring.I said I would never want to live there. And here we are. There is now our here! And we are happy here... well for the most part. MaryKate still asks if she can go home to her real home, but before she knows it this will feel like home as well.
If you ever need some home improvement help or a fence put up, I know a guy. He may need to be coaxed with cookies, cheesecake, and tomato basil soup.
