Time is a funny thing. Sometimes you look back at something and think ‘I can’t believe that was 4 years ago! It feels like it was yesterday!’ While other times, you’ll look back at something else and think ‘That happened 4 years ago? It feels like much longer!’
And sometimes, you’ll feel a confusing combination of both types of feelings. This is one of those times.
House hunting is never easy, especially when you’re trying to find your dream house while also attempting to maybe not go bankrupt in the process. Between all the things you need to check for (I’m looking at you faulty plumbing), and all the things you simply need (my kingdom for a large kitchen island!), trying to decide what is important and what you can compromise on can very quickly reduce you to a frustrated, stressed out mess.
Thankfully, our 3 year old is blissfully free from the stressful side of house hunting since all she really cares about is having a bedroom for her toys and a backyard for that pair of spider-monkeys she swears are crucial to her continued happiness.
Or at least that’s all I thought she was looking for in a house.

Me: what are you doing Lilly?
3 year old: checking for zombies.
Apparently my toddler has her own ideas of what to check for when house hunting.
A very wise friend told me that when trying to get back into the blogging mindset after an extended absence, the best thing to do was start with a picture. I'm sure she meant that start with a picture and follow it with an actual blog post, but I think I'll leave it at a picture for now. Hope everyone is having a great summer!
I know, I know, it’s not very innovative or new to declare that ‘time really flies’ or ‘where did the time go’ but seriously guys, how is it almost March already? Wasn’t it just the holiday season with lights up on the houses and the New Year just around the corner? Wasn’t it just New Year Resolution season?? I know I’m generally quite absent minded but how did I just realize that it’s (almost) March and that the new year isn’t all that new anymore?
Note to self: buy a bigger wall calendar with one of those bright red movable squares to highlight the date. Hopefully I won’t disappear for another few months only to resurface with a post about how it’s the middle of summer and I don’t know where the time went.
