Today and for the last year and a half I am thankful for our house. Houses are VERY expensive on the west coast and I am so thankful that God blessed us with the finances to buy a house in July of 2009. It has been the perfect first home and I have loved making it into a home for my family. Since moving in we have put in tile in the kitchen and finished out the basement. This coming spring we are putting in underground sprinklers and focusing on landscaping in the front and backyard. Another project for my poor overworked hubby but we are enjoying the process and learning a lot.
