I'm so excited to be typing from our new home! We've been here for about two weeks now, and it's lovely. We bought a nice split level in a neighborhood not far from Forrest's school, just what I had in mind. You'll remember that the last time we lived in Peoria, we had a split level. What can I say? The layout just works for me - a nice ranch on top with a family room and large garage below. This time around, the house is mostly updated with just a few things I want to change. I'm sure I'll be writing about that as time goes on. For now, I'm enjoying the view out the front window onto many fall trees in the neighborhood and in the distance. I'm feeling so peaceful about our spot!
