Home Sweet Home

This past Saturday the 28th was a special anniversary for Mr. Skittles and I. It was the day we signed the final papers for our new home and got the keys. It's something we worked towards since we got married almost five years ago.

We spent the day reminiscing about it all. How it felt to walk in a door to a place we owned. Taking the For Sale sign out of the living room window. Planning where everything from furniture to pots and pans would go. It was almost unreal. But I can say it was one of the happiest days of my life.

We had a small celebratory dinner and thought about buying some lady gaga concert tickets or something, but instead we went back to our normal lives the next day. And that was good.
