On Sunday we had brunch in our backyard to celebrate our house’s fourth anniversary! We’ve had brunch with family and friends every year for the house which is nice because it’s a low stress tradition. I made Lee a quick album with before and after pictures to show how much the house had changed in four years. The room that changed the least was our kitchen because it was done right before we purchased the home. The rooms that changed the most were bedrooms and bathrooms.
Today was the house’s real anniversary. I can’t believe it is four years already. I asked Lee if he was glad we bought this house. He said it was our best purchase and he is glad to come home everyday.
I always think of the woman who owned the house before me. We never met her because she passed and her family sold us the home. You see this home was my dream and at one point it must have been her dream home as well. Her family was so nice to us and left us their mother’s meticulous records on work that had been done on the home throughout the years. I always light a candle for her at our church around the anniversary.
