Another Year Has Passed

So here we are again!!!! This week marks 2 that's right TWO years since we broke ground on the house!!!!!!! Easy to remember because it was right before Thanksgiving!!!!! I just read the post I made last year during this time on Adventures in House Building. http://brandiensmith.com/adventures-in-house-building/?offset=1357841935139

I found these photos from the post from last year.

This is what it looks like today....Still a work in progress, but I am able to take a break on that hammock :) We are working on the yard this winter. We have planted two live oak trees and a crepe myrtle. We put in the outdoor water sources. We plan on bringing new dirt and prepare for grass in the Spring.

I am so happy to be in the house. After reading the post from last year I have really noticed how much has changed! We are busy bees enjoying our new place and catching up with old friends. I am moving onto a new career path with the support of that handsome fellow I married. 

We have had several smiling faces over in the past four months. We celebrated Jake's birthday, Pappy's birthday, hosted a bridal shower, had dinner with the wonderful Padres, Halloween Party, had champagne and tacos........and next week we will be hosting the Cotter Thanksgiving!!!!!! We look forward to the holidays......and at some point we will be having that We Finally Built it Party!!

My heart is full!
