Sunday was the fourth anniversary of moving into the house here. As time goes by, owning real estate becomes less of a huge, life-changing event for me and more just how things are, butĀ feeling settled continues to be awesome–as does making improvements outside, having stairs for Toby to gallop up, and living in a good neighborhood that still harbors a family of raccoons.

Like I do every year, I have a January list of things to update, (and there areĀ things that I’ve wanted to do here since day one and still need to get to) but it’s a good little house. Happy anniversary, house. I’ll finish Magic Tidying you and then we’ll get new carpeting.
