While I’m working on getting some more six month photos of the house, here’s a quick update:
My sister-in-law and her littlest came to stay for a night. Just one night, but it was wonderful to open our new home to family. It’s what we dreamed about when we first began looking for a home. No worries over the half-renovated mess in the kitchen — hospitality doesn’t require perfection.

Yet again, we hit a water issue recently. The breaker on our water heater kept flipping and leaving us with freezing water. After a few cold showers, I couldn’t take it anymore and we got a new breaker (after all, we already got a new water heater). Surprisingly, such a simple thing seemed to fix the problem.
