In the midst of recovering from the nastiest bronchitis ever, an opportunity came up that we knew we were supposed to take.  We got a house!  This is a good time to buy, and Eric and I realized we needed a bigger place than our tiny one bedroom apartment.  As we looked at 2 bedroom apartments, we figured out that they would cost as much or more than a mortgage.  It was time for the scary but exciting step of buying our first home.

It’s a fixer upper, so for the next month all our free time will be going into working on it.  You can see the work in progress posts on (which Eric is starting to post on again, hooray!).  I’m super excited to plant some fruit trees and bushes, but that will probably have to wait until next year with how much we have to do to be able to move in.

While I’ve been sick we’ve been living off of meals I’ve frozen for later.  So thankful for that foresight!  Irish beef stew, chicken chilaquiles, seafood chowder, and taco soup have all been very present on our dinner table the past few weeks.  But I have the energy to cook again, so lots of tasty new recipes are coming back starting on Monday! See you then friends :)
