I can't believe how quickly time flies these days. So, the yard is done and it's absolutely beautiful. We now have a patio with stamped concrete, some lawn for dog business, a winding path made of decomposed granite, lots of grasses and wildflowers, a beautiful olive tree, and a space for C's garden. Not to mention all of the lighting, irrigation, etc. We couldn't be happier with it. Our house is finally complete and now we're living in a bona fide home. These past few months have been relentless, but now we're finally able to relax and enjoy it all.

We also took a bit of a step back in November and adopted another dog. We hadn't planned on it, but we took Jack to a local animal fair and absolutely fell in love with a tiny stray who had been stuck in the local shelter for the past month. She's 2 years old but super tiny and the folks at the shelter had named her Olive. Given that we had just planted an olive tree it seemed like a sign. She was shy and a little stand-offish at first but now she scarcely leaves my side and she likes to cuddle up next to me on the couch. And the best part is that Jack finally has someone to keep him company when C and I are at work. I'm really happy with our little family.

All in all, things are swell. C and I are happier than we've ever been -- we've been together for five years now and things are still wonderful between us. I love my job. We're now closer to our friends and family and see them more frequently as a result. I feel really lucky. I know that things won't always be like this, but I'm enjoying and appreciating it all while it lasts.
