Life update

Just a quick post to share some news, and by way of explanation of my soon-to-be infrequent presence on the interwebs: We bought our first home yesterday!

Celebratory dinner at The Local; we bought a house today, folks.
Celebratory dinner at The Local.

We’re really excited and thankful for our friends, who are helping us move, and our families, who are coming down to help us paint (almost every room, because I’m waging a crusade against yellowy-cream walls) and fix up the new place.

It still feels very surreal. We unpacked the kitchen last night, and I kept feeling like we were doing a favor for some strangers in a strangers’ house. Regardless, I am eager to move, paint, and get settled. And probably get the first tiny Christmas tree of our marriage (yes, we’ve been very lazy about Christmas decorations all prior years).

Photos to come eventually!
