1 Year Anniversary

Today marks our one year anniversary of living in Wisconsin. It's gone by in a flash and I know that sounds so predictable, but today when I sat and thought about everything we've experienced, the work we've done on the house and all of the people we've met, I really can't believe it! We moved in and two days later it snowed like crazy. snowing in elkhorn We met some fabulous people who have been so good to us for no reason other than they are nice and know we are the newbies.

And are still painting. office lucky break acrespainting lucky break acres basement lucky break acres lucky break acres nook lucky break acres remodel Anthony got to spend Christmas with his extended family in Chicagoland for the first time in 35 years.
