I am savoring the NSV for the day. DS2 closed on the house today. He loved his first home but moved on. In his words, "I locked the house and walked away for one last time." But he did come out ahead and it was on and off the market in j... Read more

I had a nice visit with my sister yesterday and I wished we had more time to talk. But life and commitments made us part ways sooner that we thought. DH called me from the anniversary party. He said it was a block party and that there we... Read more
