I thought I had outgrown this name.
No longer a newlywed, not a new homeowner, settled into my career and comfortable in the kitchen, things were pleasantly busy and routine. I wasn’t really a “freshly minted” anything…
And then this happened:
And we moved here for a bit:
And now we’re living here, and bought a really old house:
And nothing is the same, so it’s time to write again.
We welcomed Titus in April of 2014, I left a job I loved in January of 2015, and we moved to Jersey City, NJ for four months early this year and soaked up NYC. Then, we lived like nomads between states for about six months, and had some family adventures along the way. Now, we are the new owners of a not-so-new 145-year-old house in costal Connecticut that totally captured my history-loving self the moment we walked in the door. But it needed a little TLC…
So, yep. Not a lot is the same…
The Husband works really hard. And Titus and mama hang out together. A lot. And we’re learning how to renovate a sweet but tired house, live 10 hours from grandmas, explore New England, cook again, make new friends, and how to be a family in the midst of change.
Not my forte. But it’s starting to be.
So, if you’d like, stay tuned. I’m gonna write about my (re) freshlyminted life.
