When we arrived in this place, it had a yard full of 6 ft tall Russian thistles, a paint colour only described as "ill skin", and an unfinished basement. Now that we leave, it has a gorgeous yard (work entirely done by The Guy), a gorgeous basement (work entirely done by someone else), and brand new paint colours we took 3 years deciding on.
I am excited about what the future will hold for us. We are heading towards the unknown which is equal parts exciting and scary. Though, if you take my stomach's word for it, it's mostly scary. We move into a rental for a few months until our new house is built. The next six months or so will be a huge learning curve for us. I can only hope we get through it without being too beat up.
So here we go. Onward and upward.
