one year

29 July 2010

One year ago today, Joey and I bought our house. We packed up a box truck, signed our lives away, received about 18 keys (which is amazing for a house with only 2 exterior doors), and unloaded a few things in the rain (thus Joey’s sweaty/rainy shirt). We realized that our previous owners were kind enough to cut off everything before we got there and that we forgot to check that before moving day. So we unloaded our bed and a flashlight, gave a flashlight tour of our new home to some friends, and set up camp for the night. It was weird and exciting all at the same time. We thought about reenacting that night tonight by cutting off the lights and AC and sleeping with the windows open, but then we remembered it’s July 29th and it’s blazingly hot outside. We dug out a bottle of champagne from our fridge (thanks Laura?!) and toasted to lights, water, AC, and the blessing of a home to call our own for the past year. We love it here!

oh and I munched on some raw cookie dough from some cookies I was making for a cookout we are going to tomorrow (in case our homemade ice cream attempt goes awry). Joey tried to tell me that no “grown people” do this. ummm I beg to differ…..
