Aaron and I moved our neighborhood about 2.5 years ago. When we were shopping for houses it was that crazy house frenzy - you would look at a house one day, and it would be sold the next. Aaron and I had gone back and fourth on 'must haves' - I wanted a fireplace and a master bath, Aaron wanted 4 bedrooms, a 2 car garage, and an acre of land. I would giggle when he said that, because houses like that?! In Massachusetts? In our price range? Good luck.
Turned out - we were pretty lucky. We found our house (4 bedrooms, 2 car garage on an acre of land), put an offer on it the day it went on the market, and were moving in within a month! The longer we live here, the more I realize just how great our house is. I love the location, and as we do more and more work on the house, I love the house.
But this past week, I have found yet another reason to thank my lucky stars - we have a bunch of knitters on my street! MY AGE! We have chit-chatted on occasion while walking around the street, but one day, a neighbor mentioned we should all get together and knit. I was a little nervous at first, but we had so much fun last week, that we got together again this week.... and now are planning on making it a weekly thing!
Sock knitting continues... but I went to yoga early this morning so no time for pictures.
