A little late on the announcement, but if I want this printed in my yearly Shutterfly book, it needs to make it on the blog.
We bought a house! It's an old house (1949) with a lot of character, but also a lot of land! We really love it. I'm still trying to decide if I love the city we're in, but that's still to be determined. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, about 3 living rooms, 15,000 sq feet of land, and a massive greenhouse that I'm still trying to figure out what to do with. We have some really amazing neighbors that have already been a big help with yard work and babysitting Eleanor. Really, we couldn't have asked for better families to share a driveway with!
It's been a bit of a change since it's about 30 min from our previous house. The weather is different, the beach is further away, and we don't really know too many people yet. BUT, we're pretty excited that we own a property in Hawaii. The plan is to rent it out when we leave, and then if the stars align, make it back here.
