So much has happened this year, starting with the career path change for Christian. After we decided that dental school was not the career path we were going to head down we figured it was time to buy a house and that’s just what we did. We found this charming, slightly quirky fixer upper in Lindon, Utah that we decided needed to be ours. After a few months of negotiations and many repairs we finally got the keys. It was a busy, crazy couple of weeks balancing packing, moving, and finals but we made it and are really excited about the place. I mentioned that it’s a fixer upper and I’m not exaggerating. We plan to renovate the entire home one area at a time starting with the basement. After spending nearly all summer renovating the basement I decided that the home needed a name and I knew the perfect name for it… “the projects.” Many have lifted an eyebrow at the house and given us the, you’re crazy look- and believe me, we know it. We see the potential and can picture having a family here (fingers still crossed!), we love the lot, the trees, the horses that surround us, Christian particularly loves the shops and has already set up a wood shop in one of them. The move was bitter sweet, we spent five and a half years at our first place. We grew to love our friends and neighbors, it was where Christian and I started our lives together and made so many memories. We both shed a few tears thinking about the people we were leaving. We both knew it was time to move which made everything a little easier. In the short time we have been here we have met tons of friends, and neighbors. We feel right at home here in Lindon and haven’t regretted our decision one bit!
