A Year

A year ago today we arrived at our new home.  Bleary-eyed and sleep deprived, we drove up our long driveway at 2:00 a.m., through a blanket of fog, to see our long planned for house emerge before us.  It was a beautiful and welcome site and we have enjoyed our new environment more than we ever dreamed.

Looking back – we’ve accomplished a lot!!

We planted 12 apple trees.
