Ahh! Something that isn't brown or gray!

We’ve been living on The Tenderfoot for a week and I’m happy to report that the time we spent in the apartment is a thick, impenetrable blur. We are so comfortable here that it’s quickly becoming HOME!

The bedrooms and bathrooms aren’t nearly unpacked. I’ve been searching for the same totes of kitchen gadgets and massage creams for a few days. As unsettling as that would normall be for me, I really don’t mind it.

Habits keep us all calm and happy and we have a few in place already. Leo and I usually wake up an hour before Belle and Husband do so we watch the sun rise over the pine grove and point at anything new. We also like to take nature walks together, as a family. Today we found dear tracks and flowers (I’m loving this 60F weather)!

Today was our beautiful son’s first birthday. A year ago today, Columbus was covered with layers of snow and ice and I was holding our newborn in a hospital room downtown. The Homestead wasn’t on our radar. None of this was. We had a house on the market and planned to live in an apartment until we could move to Florida.

Today we’re so happy with our home, our direction, and I wouldn’t think of raising our children anywhere else.

A pleasant birthday gift for Leo from The Tenderfoot
