September 1, 1994…the date we moved into our house, a mere twenty-three days after putting in the offer. That’s not to say our search wasn’t difficult. After eighteen months and well over 100 houses seen, it was good to be home.
I remember, as the moving trucks pulled away on that happy, sunny day, we sat on the front steps and wondered, “What the heck do we do now?”
Somehow, we took it day by day, and here we are, 15 years later and the house is officially ours. 🙂
Anyone who has been inside has no doubt noticed the enormous wooden bowl in the dining room that is filled with corks. Serving as so much more than a conversation piece, each one is a reminder of parties, dinners and celebrations large and small, the good times spent with friends and family.
Therefore, I raise my glass and toast, “Here’s to many, many more – Cheers!“
