Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey there & Happy Turkey Day (almost)! I'm wiped out. In the last two nights I've made, pumpkin pie, cheesecake, savoy cabbage gratin, pecan and dried cherry stuffing with sage, tomato and goat cheese tarts with basil AND cooked dinner AND unpacked a few boxes. I moved in just 12 days ago and I'm already hosting a holiday. haha. I'm obviously insane.

We're settling in to the house and enjoying it immensely! Everyday I come home from work I find something else that I'm happy to now have. It's my first time having a garage (no more wiping and scraping snow off my car), I have a stove with more than 1 large burner and all of them work, I have a walk-in closet to hang everything J and I own, and I've got beautiful views to look at from every window. Life is good and the new home is just one of many things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving!

I promise to get posting again regularly very soon, but for now, I'll leave you with pictures of the cheesecake I made tonight!

Yay! We're closing on the house! Finally!

If you've been a reader of mine, you know that J and I have been trying to buy a house for a while and we've been lusting after one house in particular, but closing on the house seemed like it was never going to happen! I'm happy to say that the sellers have finally got everything they need in place to close the sale and we're closing this Thursday afternoon! Yay!!

I'm crazy excited but I have a lot to do between now and then. J and I spent all weekend packing because we halted our efforts there a while ago. Now we rush to move because I'd like to be settled in for Thanksgiving! We'll be moving at the end of the week and this weekend and I know I won't get a chance to blog for a bit so hang in there and I'll be back!!

I'll leave you with a few pictures of the new place!
