Today is a great day! It’s the perfect time to get back into my blogging because today marks the 1 year anniversary in our new home. Time flies! One year ago today we were unloading a HUGE moving van and getting settled into our new life as soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs.. It has been an incredible year (as newlyweds!) – so very blessed!! I remember being SO excited to move into a cul-de-sac! Our house finally feels like our home. As you know, we love to entertain! We’ve had some great celebrations thus far (from hosting Thanksgiving dinner, to New Year’s Eve, to birthdays, to wedding showers, baby showers, Easter dinner, Mother’s Day, etc., etc.!)… and we’ve gotten to know our neighbors, we love them! Naturally I’ve taken over as social chair by creating an exclusive Facebook group and a phone directory for our neighborhood 🙂
I absolutely love our home! My favorite spot is our back porch! Ryan and I sit out there almost every morning and night. We have hundreds of birds that flock around (seriously!) and the occasional hawks and owls that pay us a visit. It’s so very peaceful! It’s too much space and fairly quiet under our roof right now… but I can only imagine the loud craziness that will happen under our roof whenever we have children running around… so I certainly don’t take it for granted! It puts a smile on my face to look over at the basketball hoop in our driveway (that has yet to get used), the woods behind our house, our butterfly bushes, our hammock, and the red picnic table in our backyard… these “things” will make for such incredible memories down the road 🙂
Cheers to many, many, many incredible years to be spent in our home with my amazing hubby!!
