Andy picked up our keys to our house Good Friday. Our plan for Easter was to do a small egg hunt in our empty house and backyard and then bake cookies. The flu decided that we would go to Mass and then all take a nap on Sunday instead.
Therefore, our cookie-baking-house-initiation happened today. Complete with a Costco pizza picnic in our backyard!
Speaking of the backyard, I am absolutely in love. In love with the yard the way it is, and definitely in love with the changes we’re discussing. Our little house sits towards the front of almost a third of an acre. That translates into an awesome amount of space out back. Check it out:
180 degrees from this pic is the following fence. Our yard continues behind it, and includes that awesome cherry tree which is just starting to bloom.
I asked Andy today, “Is it weird that so far I’m way more attached to the yard than the house?
“No,” he replied. We decided that the house still has impressions of the past owners. Holes where pictures were hung. Scuffs from old furniture. We have yet to fill it. To make it ours. The yard, perhaps, is easier to claim. There’s adventuring to be done back there. Who knows what wonderful things we’ll find?
Pictures of the inside coming next! We will definitely need some help deciding paint colors!
