Homemaking

It’s strange to think it has already been four years since I decided to move my primary residence to Washington.  In the first week of December, 2016, I called Grace and proposed the idea to her; even after I pointed out the difficulties of the idea, her response was simply “I want to be with you.”  Just a month later we had already walked in this house and decided to buy it; here’s a brief timeline of the various steps I’ve taken to make it a home:
