#7 Buy a house in London

26 Sep

So we’ve been in our house almost a year now, and we’re ALMOST finished repainting (not that it really needed it) and the only thing left to really improve is the garden but that can wait until Spring 2016. The previous owners left a very sad looking Christmas tree planted and a pathetic raspberry vine that produced 3.5 raspberries this season.

Anyway, sometimes we rent our place out on AirBnB when we go on holiday and I noticed that they were offering free verified photos. I booked them in and they were here within a week! So, this should give you an update on #7 on our list. Let us know what you think of our place 🙂

#38 Collect 30 fridge magnets

5 Apr

Am I still allowed to keep this blog going even though I just turned 31? Am I really 31? Wow. Is this real life?

So this is one item on the list that we started immediately. I can’t remember which magnet was first. Probably from the state of Pennsylvania when attending a friend’s wedding, or from the US Open on the same holiday. I think almost three years later we may have achieved this…

Let me go take some photos of how our fridge looks now and count the magnets.

SUCCESS! I counted 32 different locations! There are more than 32 magnets however, some places we loved so much we bought two (I think Australia has four!) and some places we haven’t been to together. At first I didn’t like the idea of having all of the magnets on display but every time I look at them now it makes me so happy. It reminds me of how lucky we are to be able to travel to all of these amazing places.
