To all of my new readers, welcome as well. Although I must warn you that you haven't missed out on much. Life has only recently gotten crazy and you've picked a great time to jump on the train.
Since last we left off, I've moved, relocated C to the new place from 250 miles away, got a puppy, had to find a new home for the puppy, and we are still in the midst of planning the picnic of a lifetime (A.K.A. our wedding).
So, get ready to share in my crazy attempt of trying to make a rented house a "home", prentending I'm Martha Stewart with some successful and failed DIYs, and my learning how to transition from long distance girlfriend/fiance to a wife (I know, sounds so weird).
