Poco a poco (or little by little)

There has been a lot going on in our lives since I last wrote a blog post. Buyers put a contract on our house just a few weeks after it was put on the market.  That was great news!  But then the real work started.  We needed to figure out what to keep and what to sell, and all without a plan for where we were going to live.  That’s hard!

The city is doing some of the painting and lots of us homeowners are doing our part to go along with the beautifying, too!  In the pictures above you can also see some of the new lighting, flower baskets, and trees along Sixto Osuna.
