Looks like we've ticked off the to-do items on the grown-up list. Marriage. Jobs. Kids. Now - A HOUSE! We made decisions early on in our marriage to be flexible with where we live, choosing to go to NYC for culinary school, coming back and working and then having a baby and roughing it in a variety of small rentals over the past four years. There were some I liked a lot, like the cute little house in town, and some I hated, like the past two apartments way north of town. But, they are part of our story, and part of our family, so we made good memories in each of those places. In all honesty, though, I think I can only say that because those places are behind us. So mature and noble of me, isn't it? Baby steps to contentment, people, baby steps. Here's to making new memories in a place we really love.
