The next chapter

We are here.

Our mailbox has a roof.

Zoe's bedroom has a bright orange wall, just like she wanted it.

Her closet is yellow, just like she wanted it.

My favorite spot already: our kitchen's blogging eating area, complete with skylights and a view of Zoe's "play structure" in the backyard.

Zoe seemed to figure out our crazy new fridge before I did. She will lose interest in making ice at some point, right?

This is the one corner of our bedroom I can show you without moving a metric ton of CRAP.


The one thing missing?


Our first girl. Who arrived Thursday after her flight on the brand new pet airline.

The family is all here.

Our stuff is all here (somewhere).

Now the real fun begins.

Can I just say that Zoe is awesome? How cool is she, that she wanted an orange wall and a yellow closet.

Do you like it? Are you settling in okay?

I like orange! We had an orange ceiling in our old-old house, with yellow glaze, and it always looked like a sunrise to me. Now, our dining room has orange in it.

I'm glad you're here. :)
