With the horrible tragedy in Boston, I was originally going to postpone this post. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that we all might need this. At least I need this. Because when the world looks so ugly and dangerous, sometimes we need to remember the beauty in our lives. I'll be praying for everyone in Boston. I hope you all can find your beauty again very soon.
This past weekend, J and I finally hosted our housewarming party! Without getting too too sappy, it was really amazing seeing new and old friends fill our home and backyard. It's crazy how many people we've met and become friends with in less than a year and now I don't think we could ever imagine our lives without them in it.
Something else amazing? We have a permanent home. While I've loved the other places we've lived, they were never really ours since we were renting. But these walls- in all of their concrete glory- are ours and that's such a cool feeling.
*It was also our friend's (who happens to be one of our amazing neighbors) birthday so I tried my hand at high altitude baking. A little more difficult than I expected, but overall a success (and now I want more cake.)
