"Hey. Real life...weeeeeeee're BAAAAAAAACK!"
Yeah yeah I know... I'm a bit behind in the blogging game. Apparently real life isn't quite as exciting as traveling on the other side of the world!
So here's where it's at. We finally moved into our house (that we've owned for 2 years but have never lived in). We're living in the basement, but we have nothing to complain about- it's bright, it's spacious, and most importantly... it's OURS. Plus the renters upstairs are awesome.
Oh, and we're a block and a half away from my parents which has been a delightful bonding experience! (PS- I think we're a little more attached to my parents than your average almost-27-year-old-married-to-an-almost-28-year-old).
Anyhoo, here's a glimpse of our humble abode...
There's also a bathroom (which I don't think you need to see) and a rather spacious bedroom that doubles as an office, but it's not yet public-ready. Soon. Very soon.
One of the BEST parts of our house is the apple tree in the backyard. Two years ago, Lowell's sister, Lori, pruned it to perfection, and we've been reaping the benefits like CRAZY!
We've made apple pies...
and apple sauce/fruit leather...
Such delicious little treats.
As for WORK (work? What's THAT?!), Lowell and I are both keeping busy. Lowell just began his 8 month practicum for counseling psychology (to complete his masters program) and I'm back as a speech pathologist with preschool and kindergarten kids. There are still a lot of cobwebs to shake off, but I'm loving the heck out of the kiddies!
And that is us. In a teeny tiny nutshell.
