Weekend-ing: Home and History Style

20130211-105817.jpg

Believe it or not, we’re finally about to move into our home after a six-month-long short sale (plus another year of house hunting but that’s it’s own separate story). We got word last week that things are moving forward and we’ve happily jumped back in to planning, designing, and dreaming.

Overall, we had a great weekend and walked away feeling even more reassured about our new home. It may have been windy and cold, but being able to visualize it all in person again was worth it.

A major battle in the War of 1812 took place here and this location is also an important archeological site in Maryland.
