House, Life

Don’t mind me, I’m just nesting

Things have been quiet on Trail Snail lately, but for once it’s for a good reason – JK and I bought a house! We finally had the opportunity to move from our little townhouse and into a house with an actual yard and a deck. We’ve dreamed about this for years!

House v2.0

I’ll post some real photos when we get all our furniture and stuff set up (and when I can find the camera cable which will inevitably be hidden in the last box I open), but for now I’ll post a couple of cell phone snaps and get back to marinating in all this new house love.

It feels like a vacation retreat* for us, and I find myself not wanting to even hike(!) because I’m perfectly content puttering around the neighborhood.

Maybe next week some of the newness will wear off and I can return to the world outside of my little bubble, but for now I will happily call myself a homebody.

Snow in the morning, spring in the afternoon

*Did I mention the hot tub? Oh heavens yes. I’ve never been in a totally private hot tub before, but man alive are those things more enjoyable when you don’t have to worry about other people catching a glimpse of your billowing blubber amidst the bubbles.
