A long awaited update… I was procrastinating a bit because I was waiting for confirmation but now I can tell the world that we are buying a house. We were gifted some family monies and we chose to purchase a house with SX brother and wife in New Jersey. It is on a very private drive, almost completely off grid, 6.5 acres abutting a huge nature preserve with (I’m told) great fishing. We will be taking possession later this month and moving at the end of June so that we can do some work on it first. There are pix below of the house and parklands behind. We basically have one neighbor…it feels very isolated despite being only a mile from a major highway…and very close to the darling town of Clinton.
We just got back from visiting the Treehousers on location in upstate NY at the Angry Orchard Brewery. A brief but fun visit. One of my coworkers met up with us there and we hung out while the workers worked.
The previous weekend was a lovely visit with longtime bestie, Jerret. He came out and stayed with us and we took him up to Times Square and saw a Star Wars costume exhibit.
It’s been quite the whirlwind of activity leading up to Easter and beyond- it’s turning into quite a monumental year. I look forward to showing more pix of our home and extended family.
