Our Owned Abode

H and I bought a house! We are currently still in the process of making it a home, but all in good time. The really nice thing about our Fifties ranch is that we were able to move in without doing a single thing to it. Of course we have all sorts of things planned, but it's mostly cosmetic. The place was in solid shape.

I love so many things about it, but I'll just share a few - like the driveway - you don't get those in apartments. The yard is just lovely and we have 5 trees! We are deeply enjoying the dishwasher, something I've been without for years.

And I am ridiculously thrilled about this stacked closet of shelves behind the door in the master bedroom. I've always wanted to have my purses and scarves displayed so neatly.

This is my favorite tree, smack in the middle of the back yard. It's leaves were a shimmery yellow, almost chartreuse, just before we moved in and then the ground was that color and the tree was bare. Our first full weekend was spent raking, but I have to admit I mostly just took photos of B in the leaves while Hill raked.

Just behind the house is a creek with a group of ducks that seem to always hang out within a three house area. Beckett loves to watch them and yells "DOG" every time. Which, if you think about it, kind of sounds like duck, so I think he knows what he's talking about.
