Happy Friday. We’ve been back in RI for the week visiting family and getting our house ready for our summer tenants. I always forget how much I love this house until I come back to it. It’s hard to believe we moved in a little over 6 years ago. It’s been nice to be here, but I think we’re all feeling ready to get back to Vermont, and it’s a strange feeling to have when this place felt like home for so long. A lot can change in a few years.
Wishing you all a great weekend.
