S/O and I finally own our new home! After what must be some kind of a world record three-and-a-half month escrow and a lot of drama our deed finally recorded on Friday–just in time for us to pack up and leave for our annual pilgrimage home to Hawaii. It is a relief and a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays. S/O and I won't be exchanging gifts this year as our house is our gift to each other … And for the next thirty years as well.
Because the weather was bad and for a variety of scheduling issues with work (I was leaving the house before sunrise and getting back after dark) I don't have any good pictures of the house as it looks now, but here's one from before it was done.
After a lot of stress, I do have to say I love my house so far! I can't believe it is mine!!!

Merry Christmas and enjoy yourself in Hawaii! Congratulations on your new home because it is beautiful and it will be waiting when you return, eh?
HOORAY!!! I know it was a long wait and there times you weren't sure how it was going to end up, but it turned out great! Can't think of anyone more deserving — have fun with it!
