We're homeowners!

As if we weren't doing enough these days (and hence the long media blackout at, we decided to buy a house. We needed some excitement after our recent vacation to a war zone. DC can be a bit of a let-down -- people look at you funny if you wear a flak jacket, and none of the Land Cruisers in Dupont Circle are armored (well, that we know of). And I miss seeing all the M-16s.

We've been looking for the last couple of weeks and finally got an offer accepted on a townhouse in a cute little neighborhood in suburban VA. We'll close on March 26 and then Masha can start decorating, or at least knit a few new area rugs.

  1. Congratulations on your very own little piece of the planet!

    I like how deep the back yard looks, is it an illusion or is it really that big?

    I'm sure there are plenty of things to work on (that seems to become the mantra when you buy), but it looks pretty nice; especially the kitchen.


Thanks for stopping by!
