On Aug 29th, Shannon and I moved into the first place we’ve ever owned. It’s a townhouse in Walnut Grove, a nice little community at the north end of Langley, BC. We’re really excited to finally be homeowners (other than the big mortgage part), and to be settled in one place for a while. For one thing, we’ve lived in 5 places since we’ve been married, with the longest being almost 1.5 years in a tiny cave-like basement in New Westminster. So, it would be nice to not move for a while! For another thing, we’ve had lots of our stuff in storage for the last 10 months (since before we left for Africa), so unpacking was a bit like Christmas, as we re-discovered things we’d forgotten we had.
