Adventure Season

It’s full-on adventure season now!

Our search for our perfect second home sure didn’t take too long. With a lot of research, careful planning, rock-solid financial strategy, and one dedicated weekend of nonstop looking, we locked in on our 3 bedroom/2 bath dream mountain retreat and are now in contract on what we’re referring to as “Mustang Ranch” in the town of Arnold, CA:

Is one of these the place where that chapter will unfold?

Get ready for some real estate porn!

37

37! Oy vey. I am 37 years old.

Wow.

My most recent birthday arrived a few days ago, on June 2nd. Am I ready for the final 3-2-1 countdown to 40? I don’t really know.

In a way, it terrifies me. I have a 20th year high school reunion staring me down now. Like, 20 years ago this month I was getting my senior pictures taken for good old Northville High…

Just one of my MANY senior photos. Yep – talk about oy vey.
